Flickr slideshow of some recent works, and "Tiger Valentine."

I never did this before, so the pictures are all in one slideshow, starting with "First Lady," which I finished in May, 2009, and ending with my newest works in February, 2010.  I think I like this trick!  :) I hope you like it!

Also, here's a picture of the Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year of the Tiger card I just made for Jimmy and GEM (Gretchen, Eva, and Mike)

It's called "Tiger Valentine" and is a drawing on paper with blue Bic pen and prismacolor pencil, and with a Chinese fortune cookie paper fortune glued on. I drew from a little blue bath ducky we had when I was a kid, and added the face to remind us of Gretchen's Hey, Diddle, Diddle cookie jar. The fortune cookies are for all the art I used to make with them and the paper fortunes in it, as well as all the Chinese New Year parties I used to throw!  I used to even make fortune cookies with clay and glaze them.  Sometimes I put acrylic paints on real fortune cookies.  :)  Once they unfolded, because I got them too soggy, and they became beautiful circles.  That's how I discovered how they shape them!
