Five years of blogging and a dog sweater

I started this blog five years ago (on the 17th) with an Illustration Friday post on the topic 'song'. Here's an illustration of my cat and dog I started last week for the IF topic 'sweater'. Between the two posts, there has been a lot of sketching and painting and learning (in fact, with this illo, I learned that you can't color in a solid black with a 3b pencil on watercolor paper). I'm thankful for all the supportive blog comments over the years from the IF community, from SCBWI friends, and from people just stopping by.

And to celebrate, here's a little something sweet I created recently for an invitation.
