Illustration Friday -- Cake (and Edith, Too)

This weeks topic for Illustration Friday is Cake. Instead of doing the traditional drawing of a cake, I wanted to do something out of the ordinary. While in Edinboro this weekend, I drew this and titled it, "Cake and Edith, Too."

Not sure if I'll color it or not. Maybe coloring it will be a Photoshop project for me one day.

This has childrens book illustrator written all over it!!! Love the faces, and the plumpness.

You know, I see your header drawing of your self, and see you totally different now. You didn't do yourself justice in your own portrait, though it is still good.
hehe
