IF: Wise (aka Poppieees)

[10 Nov 2008 | By | 0 Comment(s) | 3,718 views ]

Here’s a sketch I did for Illustration Friday this week. I call it Poppieees (you have to say it in that Wicked Witch voice.) We just finished reading the Wizard of Oz
(all 20 something chapters) to The Boy for his bedtime story for the past few weeks.

Oh, and artists, I’m doing a Holiday Card Art Show/contest here on Dabbled, hope you’ll join!

The scarecrow was wise, he knew they must keep moving…

    So very cute! That was always my favorite part of the movie, for some strange reason.

    Will you be doing any other children’s books? Maybe Alice in Wonderland next? :)
