Back To Blogging!



Happy New Year! Things have settled back down, and I'm glad to get back into the blog ring. This is a Christmas gift I made for two of my younger cousins. They both like this particular story, which originally has no illustrations. I illustrated it for them, featuring 10 different animals holding each other up on pieces of string. Medium is watercolour (the string itself is real). The book is bound so that it can fold out, revealing the whole chain. My cousins really liked it, which made me happy!

Thats a really good idea, i made my friend chrismas gift also. Nothing is better than gifts you make yourself, plus no one can have the same thing they have which makes it even better.
