Our first day of vacation at my mom’s cabin in the woods has been soggy and cold –  not so great for doing anything on the pond, but perfect for sitting inside and working on some cartoon illustrations!  And so I did.

Here are a few “selfie” inspired cartoon sketches…

Little Miss Muffet

And a cartoon sketch loosely based on my mother, who kindly consented to “sit” for me.

Meh-meh on her phone

      Hi Denise,

      My mom IS a cutie and we’re having a great time visiting with her. We went blueberry and raspberry picking today, and the pictures will follow soon!

      🙂 Joana
