Splotchmonster 379 Has A Sweet Ride

An Out of This World Homecoming

Who is Homecoming Queen?  Splotchmonster 379, of course.

This illustration is a perfect example of what happens when all of those random thoughts that are swirling around in your head come spilling out onto the page.  This week's Illustration Friday theme is 'transportation'. Pair that with the monster happenings at Nutty's challenge and you have the beginnings of a crazy collage.  Add to that a trip over to Steve Loya's blog where '379' spoke to me, my continued obsession with left handed cats, and a desire to draw on a newspaper that was lying around and you have yourself a very quirky piece of art.

So, I guess you could say I'm kind of all over the place in my creative space today.  (If you'd like to see what other artists have been working on, be sure to pop over to Kirsty's blog!)

In other news, I received a fantastic package in the mail...

Isn't it beautiful?  It's even more spectacular in person!  The very creative Robin Norgren crocheted this bag for a giveaway at the very cool Making this Home blog... and I won!!!  (I am certainly a very lucky lady)  Thank you Robin and Katie!

Make sure to visit Robin's etsy shop if you would like a fabulous bag of your own.
