Illustration Friday: Help

Snowman and Bird

It's been quite awhile since I made an entry! I've been busy with a book cover project for The Berkley Publishing Group (Penguin Books), a commissioned family portrait collage, and the predictably hectic Christmas shopping and decorating.

I was in the mood to work on a Christmas image and had this snowman cut out and ready to go. The snowman is being quite helpful by holding up the bird's house. Stick arms never get tired. Snowman and Bird is a cut paper and digital collage.

Snowman and Bird Version 2

I created this second version showing a more helpful snowman...using his scarf to hang the birdhouse. Industrious!
