Illustration Friday: Spooky



This is in honor of my 18-month old who is literally afraid of her own shadow (a new and hopefully short-lived phase).

After receiving an award from Leen Christens, I am excited to pass it on to some more Illustration Friday bloggers whose work I truly enjoy. The list could be much, much longer but I tried not to include folks who have already received the award. Thanks everyone for stopping by!

This made me smile as it is how my dear cat behaves, he too jumps at his own shadow at times..just shows he can't be a little tiger all the time!
Great fun! Have a good weekend,
Love Jane x

Great one Bethanie! I was contemplating something similar, but changed direction. Glad I did because mine would have failed miserably next to yours. Very nice composition and artwork!
