Another sneak peek from the book! I used to walk down this street every morning, I miss it!

After a whirlwind last few months of freelance, I finally have some time for my own work! Another sneak peek for the book I have been working on.

So much love for this movie, and especially this character. I wish I had more time to draw more from this film, but I managed to squeak this one out. Sorry about the lack of posts, I have so much work right now I don’t have time to do much personal stuff, but I can’t wait to show what I have been working on once I am allowed to do so. But in the meantime, go see this movie and do the drawings I wish I could do, and do them even better than what I have time for right now!

Love ya sis!

Not dead yet! More princess mouse designs. This is the one of the father of the two boys. I am looking back at the designs I did a while ago and I feel like I still have a long way to go. 
So I saw Ghostbusters for the first time last night, (I know, I know, I am so lame) and I could not help but think this when Gozer showed up! Am I wrong? I mean, I was laughing because all I could think of is that Gozer is the love child of these two. Which would probably make you think you are a God.
