Very ornate. Love the prawns (or are they shrimp?) and the bunnies. Also, the dragonesque crocodile (or is it an alligator?) is pretty funny. Actually both of them are kinda humorous.

As far as solving your coloring problem with those black and white sketchbook drawings goes, I got nothing. If it were me I'd just scan them in and splash some color on them either in Painter, Photoshop, or print out then color on them, but I dunno if that's something you would do.

Shobo- They are shrimprawns. I'm actually quite fond of the way those turned out, if I cared for tattoos at all I might get one of those put on me. I'm glad you see the humor. I'm thinking about calling the one with the fish "Seafood Buffet"
I thought about computer coloring the drawings, but I kinda suck at that. I can't make it not look "computery". Perhaps I could try printing them on some good paper then coloring. Eh.

DOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are the queen! I love the shrimp and the mosquitoes. How did the show go?

Thanks Jason! If you mean the Horn Island show it has yet to happen, I think it is in early September. Or something. I should check on that probably.

You are so ridiculously talented! Seriously. I really like these, especially the alligator/hares one. I'm betting you're going to sell all of your pieces at the Horn Island show.

michelle said...

Thanks Raleigh! I'm hoping you win that bet!
