A mouse and a rooster

This morning was so lovely! The sun finally woke up after a looong nap. I was starting to wonder if it would ever make it's way up here. The brightness outside made it very easy for the whole family to wake up and leave the house bright and early, everyone ready for their task of the day, whether it was in school, preschool, work or studio.

Finally I'm seeing a glimpse of color on the illustrations I've been working on for the last few weeks. Many, many, (in fact incredible many!) left to finish, but I am looking forward to spend the month of May painting.

This sunny morning started with a very black cup of coffee, the Royal Wedding streaming on my computer, and this mouse and this rooster...

'O' is for 'Ormur'!

This is a drawing for the book that I'm working on now. This spread is for the letter 'O', which in this case stands for the word 'Ormur' which means 'Worm'. I tried to fit the whole story into this one spread, creating a kind of a collage/comic strip into the worm circling around the page.

Oooooh, and it's snowing again! Come on, it's April!
