Illustration Friday: Sorry

Meet Nelly. Nelly loved to play. She was pretty convinced she was going to keep it going as a career when she grew up. Nelly had a dog named Frisbee and played with him sometimes too.

One day Frisbee ate her homework while she was outside playing. Yes, thats right, her dog ate her homework. Sorry excuse to give, yes again, but it really happened! Really!



Nelly painted in watercolor on
2.75"x3.75" amalfi cotton rag paper.

I love the color in this one - cool rainbow hair. The dog looks very sorry indeed.

Sensational! Your style, those eyes, the curly hair...and the fabulous colors. I reviewed your other pictures and love the 1-page stories. What talent!

This is lovely. Lovely colours, and wonderfully funny. I love the idea that Nelly draws (for her homework, perhaps?) what has happened to her homework. Sounds like the sort of thing my girls would do.

Can you help me get MY hair to do that??? :-)

My dog never ate books, but Rex (may he rest in peace) the venerable ex-dog of my roommate John LOVED to eat paper and books. He was erudite in his tastes, too, chowing down on the complete works of Shakespeare rather than Vanity Fair magazine, even though he had to get up on his hind legs to reach the book.

Beautiful drawing as always, Shoofly.

Too cute. Love the curls and the three-hole looseleaf!

Hey, have a blast in Beirut. What a neat experience!
