  2. Hi!
    I love your sheep! I just discovered Illustration Friday and posted something for the first time. It looks really fun. What a cool blog you have. I look forward to watching it.
    I'll link to you, too! :-)

  4. LOL! Yes, most wool makes me itch. Your colorful sheep are darling and they look so cozy in the snowy field. You created a lovely piece for the new year!

    p.s. I know it's not Monday, but here I am :) Have a joyful weekend.

  9. Beautiful sheep!! You'd be surprised how much less itchy it is in the raw-- I think the scrubbing of preparation for cloth is what makes it feel so crummy.

  12. Just as I was about to write "me too" I noticed all the other folks who are plagued by wool's itch factor. Wonder if ANYONE other than sheep can wear it without getting itchy?

    Absolutely adorable image! Love your little sheepses!

  13. Oh, now this is beautiful! I love the colors and patterns you've dressed the sheep in. It contrasts so nicely with the cool colors of the sky and snow. If you have a moment, I've tagged your blog in mine. You needn't reply but in trying to think of work I admire, yours of course came to mind.

    Happy New Year!

  14. Fancy Sheep there in their multicolored polyester scarves. (he he he he )

    By the way, how is the book you are illustrating proceeding? I would love to know when it will be available for purchase.

  16. This is wonderful! Wool makes me itchy, too, which makes me glad I'm not a sheep.

    btw: did you ever check the results of the drawing? Hmmm.....??? tsk tsk tsk

  17. As kate so cleverly points out, the wool never seems to itch the sheep. I see that sketched out has also identified an excellent question. Isn't it about time for some research group to come up with a substance that will keep us from itching too! I'll be happy to be the test subject ... send all scarfs, sweaters, mittens, socks and anti-itch potions to me right away! :D

  18. I did one with a sheep a too. Yours are truly wonderful! I agree wool is itchy!

  19. I really love this image and the style of your illustration.
    Your post reminds me of a story that my Dad told me. When he was a kid in Italy his Mom would make him wear woolen stockings in the winter. My Dad said that it was pure torture. As soon as he would get outside he would take them off. He said that he would rather be cold than be tortured by the itchies.

  20. I know the feeling! and I love your sheep, they're faces are a little ambiguous, which I feel all animals look like when they look at humans. it's like they're going "wha..?"

  34. Awesome image you've created here! I love winter scenes- like how you put in those vibrant blankets as contrast to the cool blues. Sheep = funny expressions hahaha & looks like the trees are dancing on the hills.
