Illustration Friday (Un) caged


The word over at Illustration Friday is "caged."

I think this is how it should be!

Happy Weekend everyone, and thanks so much for all the birthday wishes ;)

xoxo

(this is a cover for one of my children's stories that hasn't found a publisher...yet!)

    Happy happy happy birthday lolo, i am sorry i'm late, but i told kj, you get the whole month (according to my motherinlaw) to celebrate. and i know you'll do just that when you and Marianne and kj and mim meet. How wonderfully exciting. Wish i could be there too.
