You are soooooooo funny Vanessa, you crack me up, love this illustration, I'm glad you are sneaking out for a little visit... I will pick up pompoms and cheer with Amalia if you need a cheer squad. My pom poms are at the ready position.

Tamara Henderson said...

Hi Vanessa! Thank you for the shout out lol!!! I'm happy your doing good and I know your probably really busy creating a lot of new, wonderful art...can't wait to see! Have fun!


Bella Sinclair said...

Oh dear. I see Ces is off her meds again.

Most EXCELLENT! I love Nanette. She is tres chic with her pink apple cheeks. And Mr. Wabbit! Hahahahaha, oh goodness, he looks like he's going to play a round of golf! Ohh, girlie, you don't even have to try, do you. You just lift your pen and it just comes right out, huh. You just leak talent. You sneeze or hiccup and... ACHOO -- oops, I done it again, there's the cutest little girl with sass on my paper. Huh.

Ooooh, I found a butt! I found a butt! Better get it to you before Ces thinks it's her prize.

donny* said...

brilliant! brilliant, i say! you are just so flippin' awesome! now, my task for next week? find pants like mr wabbit there. i think i can pull it off. :)

Ces Adorio said...

I did too, take my medications.

My butt is big enough, I don't need another one! Oh what does that mean I have only one butt? Kind of lopsided?

See Vee, It is Bella's fault why I don't get enough sleep.I just came here to say goodnight and she starts talking about my butt.


Tsup! Tsup!!!

Francisco Martins said...

Hey V, whassup girl?? hahaha, you're funny!!
what's wrong with all those butts, how on earth did they got lost???? :P
Nanette and Mr. Wabbit look like they are preparing something seriously EVIL!! :P

Love the illustration! :D

Portuguese kiss!

PS: is Ces ok? LOL!

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Oh My goodness Ces! You've won a butt!!!! I big round one! I'm having mine repaired by Bella! It keeps falling off!

Peter Breese said...

Awesome V.. that darn Wabbit does appear to have trouble on his mind!

Cheryl Lynn said...

I'm so happy to see Nannette and Mr. Wabbit! I don't know if you know this or not, but the fight between these two and girlie is what endeared me to your blog. When I saw shoes flying around and nothing but smoke in the air I hollered laughing and have been hooked on your blog ever since. I love you and miss you much, Momma. But I'm so happy for you and the mountain of work you have. Bravo and Congrats!

Hopefully we'll talk soon.

Nicola said...

hehehe what a great post and I love these two characters!!! So adorable! :0)

roberta baird said...

Oh to be as graceful as Nanette!
I love this Nessa! Your style continues to evolve... I don't know how you can improve on pure delight but you do girl!!

Bella Sinclair said...

I got it! I got it! Medical grade super-glue, honey. I'm a-gonna give you a kick-a** butt lift. Firm with a bit of bounce. Kim Kardashian, eat your heart out!

Good thing you gave Ces her own butt, otherwise she'd have her hands all over yours.

Vicki Smith said...

Your puppets truly soar!!! Very adorable.

Ces Adorio said...

This comment section is turning into a butthead convention and now everything I am drawing looks like a butt! ****WWRRRRRRR**** Shaking butt image out of my mind because I am trying to draw your scarf. Oh Veee, you are beautiful. I love you sisterfriend! Tsup!

Uh oh - You trust Bella to do the butt lift procedure? And BTW, what does she mean my hand will be all over yours? I am not a butt person. Actually I need a butt lift too. Have been sitting on it for hours drawing that I think it has become part if the chair! I need a butt extraction!

Tamara Henderson said...

Amanda Baeza said...

Oh! I'm there! I'm there! thank you Vanessa Newton! Your dancing puppets are so tender... If I was a puppet, I will probably want to be the girl with the pink skirt!

Shirley said...

Oh Nester! Nanette and Mr. Wabbit are a dashing duo...look at that beautiful pointe Nanette is's those perfect details, that just make your illustrations top-notch, sweetie! I hope all is well. Fingers are still working, and kiddies are on break now. Yippeee!!! Time to sleep in and rest a bit. : ) I hope all is lovely and wonderful in your world. Thank you for keeping us updated with you!
