I Did It!

Have a Rosey Day! Sherry West, SherryWestArt, 2019

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 draw. Unfortunately, coloring is NOT my gift. I can draw, but I can’t color. That’s NOT good for a professional artist.

I have to ask others who are good colorists for help in that dept., and lucky for me, there are lots of good ones out there in the area I’ve chosen to specialize in – adult coloring and stamping – who love to color, are good at it, and kindly and graciously volunteer to help me.

After I Publically beg for help.

I have met so many nice people through this method, that I actually look forward to having to ask for assistance because I know I’m going to get some new wonderful friends, as well as some great coloring, out of the whole deal.

There’s a good reason why kids and pets beg….

It works!

See Ya Later, Alligator…

See Ya Later, Alligator…Sherry West, SherryWestArt, 2019

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.

See Ya Later, Alligator….Sherry West, SherryWestArt, 2019



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 what I did with him! (See top illustration.)

He also looked like he was dancing and needed some dance buddies, so I used the copy, paste feature in my art program to give him so partners! (Think Whitney H.’s song with the lyrics “I wanna dance with somebody…” You’re welcome.)
