WOW- this has to be the happiest island in the world. Love the expressions and the characters- the clouds are awesome (the line with the shape braking out of the line). AWESOME WORK! Thanks for your comments- totally appreciate em.

Bella Sinclair said...

Mmmmmm, absolutely scrumptious! Such delightful colors and lines and characters. I'm going to take my little rowboat and find your island. But I don't think I could eat any of these guys. They're much too happy and cute! This must be where they go to escape hungry kids.

And congrats on the awards!!! I loooooove your blog, too!
