Business Baby

Well, some bad news on the ongoing quest of mine to do a Lewis and Clark illustration. I'm working on a picture book about museums, and I whined and pleaded to change the Victorian era page to one about Lewis and Clark. Ok, I really only sort of casually tossed out the possibility, but it didn't fly.

Someday. Someday when I have a minute to breathe, I WILL paint a Lewis and Clark picture. :-)

In the meantime, I don't think I ever posted this one (see above). We love doing these at work - they are for a rhyming activity. We get three random words that rhyme, and have to figure out some sort of picture for them. So apparently pen, briefcase and pacifier all rhyme in Portuguese.

To get the texture, I scanned a blank piece of copy paper, played with the levels to increase the contrast and then set that layer to overlay. But I think if you use the Noise filter, you get pretty much the exact same effect.

Who would want to draw Lewis and Clark? That is soo yesterday. Try Sonny and Cher.
