When she saw that Horace was feeling melancholy, Gina called in the troops to cheer him up. Just moments after this image was captured, Horace cheered up immeasurably, grabbed his bright green mandolin, and led them in a rousing rendition of “I Want to Be Your Friend” by 11 Acorn Lane. Gina beakily provided horn accompaniment, while Oditi (far left) insisted on repeating the Deedlee-doo, Deedlee-dee bit. They jumped and clapped and spun around.
Happy January 1! The year ahead is filled with promise, opportunity and undreamt surprises. New discoveries, rediscoveries and unwelcome news. Birthdays, lazy Saturdays, and days when the sun will seemingly fail to shine.
But you are here! Thank you for coming. I hope this year holds lots of the good things and less of the bad things, for everyone. More recent sketching below.
OH MY, Cindy! Your work is incredible! Absolutely fallen in love with it. Thank you for dropping into my blog today. Happy New Year! hugs, Donna

Absolutely delightful, Cindy! I love that you are taking these creatures farther into stranger territory while retaining their charm!
These are wonderful. I love how you’ve combined traditional facial features with the unexpected, as well as adding the pattern and design (and smuggling, doh! ;)
Fab art work. Happy PPF

Great start for the new year-can’t wait to see them all in color!! OX OX Mom
Have a great new year, filled with fantasy and art!!!!
Cindy, I really like the composition on the sketch, “And then there were fish, and things became muddled.” The fish floating around in the back ground and the confident expression of the bird creature give the illustration a great whimsical life. Have a great 2016. I hope this year holds lots of the good things.
Cindy, thanks for stopping by my blog- and now I’ve discovered yours. I love these awesome creatures!!!
Love these! so imaginative!
Lots of fun sketches! I like the lower left of the quad the best.
