THE KING

Once upon a time, long long ago, in a dry desert land far, far away, there lived a King and a Queen. The King and the Queen had just one child, a little daughter. Many people had children, but some did not. Those who didn’t would have given everything they possessed in order to have […]

I’m in a real live book! Well, not ME, exactly. My poems! Which is MUCH better!

B is for Bunny, T is for Trouble: the Trouble with Bunnies

Folks always assume an artist can draw Anything. Ím here to tell you that’s Not So. See that bunny up there? That´s my 10th bunny today, or somewhere thereabouts. Or would that be Thereabunnies? Yoúd think something so absolutely adorable, soft, round and squishy would be easy to draw….but not just draw it, but make […]

Pupperoni Pizza

PUPPERONI PIZZA We had Supreme pizza for dinner and left the rest sitting on the kitchen counter. Two slices went uneaten and remained on top of the box they came in which we always use as a hot pad of sorts. Due to being busy, I was elsewhere occupied in the house, as was everyone […]

Who???

(Major Spoiler Alert) “Who’s Ben Solo???” Kevin (hubby) just asked me, a totally appropriate Christmas Eve conversation. I just stared at him incredulously – with my mouth open. This is the man who has every single Star Wars movie and has seen them more times than I can count. “WHO’S BEN SOLO???” I asked him. […]

Breathing Fire

If I have to draw just one more freaking micro-sized dragon scale, Ím going to croak. This is taking waaaaayyyyyy ttttoooooooo lllloooonnnnnggggggg. I did his neck, went down, then worked on his behind, and when I was about to lose my mind, I moved onto his tail, but when I eyeballed all the real estate […]

Shés here! Today is the day! Glo magazine released their latest issue, and my art is on the cover! Glo is a FREE womeńs monthly Ft. Wayne, Indiana publication. I’ve been wanting to see my art on the cover for the last few years since they started publication. What a thrill! It was such a […]

Fall Friends

Cats. We have lots and lots of cats. And we’ve got them in every shape, size, pattern and color. Especially Fall colors…which is rather odd. But then again, our cats tend to be rather odd. My cat is the Mother Ship. She’s a medium long-hair tortoiseshell – snowy white on her bottom half and large […]

I Love You a (Facebook) ´Bot!

Ok, while Ím triggering the Facebook sensors, I might as well go for it. I’ve been on a roll the last two posts, might as well keep going. Apparently, therés just Something about me and my posts that trips the Facebook ´bots and makes them nuts. When I began designing adult coloring pages in 2016, […]

GOIN´ VEGAN

The folks at Facebook Corporate must not be carnivores. That´s just a wild guess based on my latest encounter with them in the guise of trying to add images to my FB shop. Take the item below I was trying to upload, for instance… I realize they believe it´s their Most Solemn Responsibility to make […]

Rather Risqué

Polly Paper Dolly has a rather peculiar PROBLEM. Facebook, that measured modern moderator of all things most beneficial to civilized society, doesn’t think she is appropriate for your delicate sensibilities, so she has been BANNED from their Very Respectable Forum. (Consequently, I can´t sell her to you in my Facebook shop.) Apparently, she ´s too […]

The Pumpkin Fairy

Charlie Brown had the Great Pumpkin. Out here in the farmlands of Midwest Indiana, we´ve got the Pumpkin Fairy. What does she do, exactly? She flies around pollinating lovely little yellow pumpkin blossoms with her magical pumpkin wand pollinator, of course! I ´m not exactly sure what else she does just yet, cuz I haven […]

Silly Spooders

Awhile ago, a long while ago, I submitted to Bored Panda what I thought was SURE to be the next viral cartoon series “Silly Spiders.” With a few hundred views, no positive comments, no shares and only 20 upvotes (sympathetic friends and family, I’m guessing), I quickly realized the inevitable (which didn’t include going viral). […]

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I’m pretty tickled with how this one came out! I know the colors aren’t exactly Christmas-y, but I like it. Technically, it qualifies….red, green, gold, lol. My art piece was accepted by a women’s magazine and will be out next week. This design is based on that piece, which is in another post […]

A PERSISTENT LIL BUGGER

Woo-hoo! And I do mean WOO-HOO! Two years ago, almost to the exact day, I submitted Fall-themed images to a womeńs magazine. And in the following couple of years, Íve submitted others which were not selected. I had honestly given up hope they would ever use anything I submitted to them, but I still kept […]

Rock On, Elton Turkey!

For your dining pleasure, may I suggest ELTON TURKEY? TODAY´S SPECIAL is a plump, juicy, delicious bird with a heaping side of pumpkins and corn. BUT….you’ll have to catch him, first.

Sherry’s Cards

Before designing coloring pages, rubber and digital stamps, I enjoyed using my photographs to create greeting cards. At the time, I was completely unfamiliar with the stamping and cardmaking world, and was on a very limited budget. These are cards are so plain now when I look at them. The only supplies I had were […]

Yes, That’s a Chicken on My Head

Her name is Applesauce. She belongs to my oldest son. Both boys name every pet they get after food. Her name is pretty self-explanatory. I had to move FAST to handle that book, put the chick up there, hold the the iPhone for a selfie, get everything positioned just right so it didn’t come out […]

WWF Smack-Down

I’m in the kitchen, standing at the counter. Rainier, my 4-yr-old, comes in and very determinedly calls for me, “Pee!” He tells me earnestly and very emphatically. That means he peed in his training pants, and they need to be changed. That’s a very good sign. If it’s bugging him, then we are close to […]

Moooooooommmmmmm, He Called Me a……….

As you may be aware from reading some of our goofy family stories, our youngest, Rainier, is 4-ish and has a language delay. It creates a lot of difficulty for us all on a regular basis when we try to make out what he’s trying to tell us.  Well, yesterday, he made himself known, loud […]

The Chicken or The Egg?

It’s breakfast and the boys are eating at the dining room table.  Something is missing from their meal…protein.  So I ask them if they want an egg.  Gabriel asks,”Flat?” That’s his way of asking if it’s fried, as opposed to “round”(I.e. boiled). “No,” I reply. “Round.” “No.” He says. He only wants a fried egg. […]

Oooohhhhh, Nooooo, You Don’t!!!

The half-bath room is right in line with the back door. It has one sink and a toilet. Alex has to walk through there with Marla to Kevin’s office where the back door is to take Marla out for her daily potty breaks. (Our entire Flock of Flurrkins likes to park right on the concrete […]

I Did It!

I did it! I can color! I’m NOT naturally gifted in the coloring department. Not. At. All. If someone is “artistic” in one area, that doesn’t automatically guarantee they will be artistic in another area….like, say…oh…coloring in my own line work. As a professional illustrator, I HAVE to be able to color in what I […]

Surprise!

Bored, I was foofing around on the internet and typed in the title of my book just to see what it might pull up, and THIS popped up! I wasn’t aware that it would be up this early. I was under the impression it would be much closer to the ebook release date of July […]

Bathing Beauty

Yesterday,, I plunked the boys in a great big warm bubbly bathtub, where they had a wonderful time,then got out, dried off, dressed and exited. Someone else was in there, too, standing right next to the tub that still had water in it. I looked at her, then looked at the tub, then back at […]

Meet Miss Marla! She is the newest addition to our family. She’s a 2-1/2-yr-old, perfectly-behaved, super-smart, white German Shepherd. She’s better-behaved and much more polite than the rest of us. We are all already taking some cues in the better-behavior department from the new dog!🤣 Jalapeño, the cat on the other side of the kitchen […]

See Ya Later, Alligator…

An absolutely amazing photo of a very self-satisfied looking, slyly smiling caiman wearing an unlikely crown of butterflies appeared on my Facebook feed recently (https://www.thisiscolossal.com/2016/09/a-caiman-covered-in-butterflies-photographed-by-mark-cowan/). It inspired me to draw the goofy guy below. I have no idea what he’s doing…just something randomly un-alligator-ly. A friend suggested he’d make a great end-of-relationship card, so that’s […]

Tooty-Toot, Maisy!

When our daughter was small, we read her the Maisy the mouse books by Lucy Cousins. In one of them, Maisy has a train. Somewhere in the text it reads, “Tooty-toot, Maisy!” whenever the train blows it’s whistle. So now, whenever someone is gassy, we all yell “Tooty-Toot, Maisy!” Gabriel, a very typical seven-year-old boy, […]

Meatballs & Bananas

Our youngest, Rainier, is a very late bloomer in the vocabulary department. He’s just starting to take to the idea that words are for describing things, conveying ideas, thoughts and feelings. His latest and greatest words are “banana, poop and meatball.“ He loves the reaction he gets from everyone when he actually uses words to […]
