Gators and Tikis

A fun project came my way last spring. I was hired to help a local entrepreneur with a logo for a restaurant with a tropical theme. The project took several twists and turns with many name changes along the way —due mostly to the frenzied timeline the project was under.

I'm happy to say that I did take the logo to it's finished form, and it came out fine —although far less kitschy. I hope to post it at a later date. In the meantime, I'll share some of my favorite critters I've met along the way.

Happy Birthday, Carol!

This is a relative quickie that I did for my daughter's birthday. She requested a hamster and unicorn. My first impulse was to to explain to her that unicorns and hamsters don't go together.
I was forgetting the cardinal rule of artists and children.
With children, everything goes together. It's the artist's job to deal with it, until the kid is proven correct.
