That sounds important. And it looks so inspiering, but I have to admitt i look more like your Lady with the drink, especially around the middle (hi hi).
I wish you happy easter!
A big big hug

Move it, groove it! Your pictures have so much energy and pizzaz. You should get the girls in your pictures to help you move!

Be well, Super V. Don't strain yourself. And Happy Passover-Easter to you and yours!

Happy Easter.

These are wonderful!

Charmaine D'Silva said...

V!!!! Happy Easter my friend!

You are truly one of the most prolific artists/illustrators out there. Every time I visit your site, you have ten new amazing things up. I just love these two pieces especially the old-fashioned feel to GLORIA and that console in the background. Is it a book you are working on?

xoxo Charmaine

Megan Coyle said...

Both of these are amazing :) And that's fantastic that you made an illustration for National Geographic.

Annnnnnd, have a happy holiday weekend :)

michele said...

Wish I could get a move on like the kids in your Nat'l Geo pic, but I'm feeling more like Glo, with a little mo' slow, in the next one, lately!
Wishing you and your family a very Happy Easter- Hope the bunny leaves you a basket full of goodies! :o)
