IF … Tropical

              Peet finally agreed to a spin around the lagoon. Within minutes, 
              he was relaxed and having a grand ol' time (as I knew he would). 
              I, on the other hand, kept a keen eye on the crocodile that had 
              slipped into the water just after we launched.

IF … Moon

Hey diddle diddle,
This post is a riddle –
Why did Peet jump over the moon?
The little cat mewed,
To see such a sight,
While Buttercup whistled a tune.

Cat Tale

Currently, I'm teaching my Digital Arts class how to use Adobe Illustrator.
Their assignment is to design a postage stamp. Along with an image, the stamp's value and the mythical country from which it's been issued must be present. This is the art I developed as I demonstrated Illustrator's various tools and techniques.
A special shout-out to Laurel Burch for the inspiration for this design.
Hmmmm … I just may order custom stamps.
