Happy Turkey day
Here we go. First time to be flying with the family over this harried holiday. Oh, heavens. We're off to visit my mom who's taken up residence in Las Vegas. I hope to get some airport drawings done or some sort of drawings done on the trip.
I leave you with images from Ernest H. Shepard. These images of Shepard's are not of Pooh or Willows folk. The focus of the narratives are about the holidays. I thought it appropriate for the week--fitful sleep, harried travel, and taxing festivities--all good fun--though nothing beats a quiet, intimate dinner, I always say.

I've admired his "decorations" on the Winnie the Pooh books for so long (I keep buying the same books over), so it came to pass that one day I gave myself the job of illustrating my own self-published little book, "Frogg's Lament." A Nina book, to be sure, an homage to Mr. Toad of Wind in the Willows fame by Kenneth Grahame (of course illustrated by EHS and famous for it, though Grahame didn't live to see those drawings adorn his stories).
Buford K. Frogg causes all sorts of trouble for Nina. Page 31, much has happened already.
Have a safe and happy holiday week.
Tirade post on Frogg's Lament. It' been a year and half already? Must get to work.
