Illustrations by Jean-Paul Tibbles
The single book version of Just Josefina came with a recipe at the end, so I thought with Thanksgiving today and all, you’d might like it. Of course, a pie recipe would be a bit more fitting for the holiday….
I have 3 more short story illustrations to share! I’ll put them in the queue soon enough :)
-Kaya snuggles into her soft fur pillow and holds her doll tight. Another day of unforgettable adventure comes to a close.
-Marie-Grace and Cecile share a quiet moment amid the fun and festivities of New Orleans.
-Addy admires the beautiful plaid dress from Mrs. Ford’s dress shop—the fine sewing done by Momma’s own hand! Truly, this is a Christmas gift that she will never forget.
-Josefina cheerfully prepares for tonight’s fiesta, warmed by the oven and the memories of holidays spent with Mama.
Oh man Kaya’s description is pretty bland (“unforgettable adventure”?), but the photo is lovely *v*
How on Earth did I miss this adorable post?!
Gah, this is quite a big project I’ve been working on. Anyone remember the American Girl dolls? I was a huge fan as a kid and I grew up with all of these ladies, so I wanted to make a sort of tribute to them. I’ve got 7 of 12 portraits done. I’m posting them in the hopes that it will motivate me to finish! I still have to finish actually drawing them, then ink and color. Whoop.
These look great so far! I hope you’ll have the motivation to finish them :)
Who else read the American Girl books as a kid? My younger siblings are getting into them now as they go along with history studies so I have been reintroduced to it all!
These are what Itty Bitty humans look like. Animals are easier than people for me so humanish commissions are $2 instead of animals for $1 (will also take equivalent in dA point or Subeta moneyz). Commission info post to come soon, along with some more detailed traditional art, I promise!
Characters here are property of American Girl.
So the individual copy of A Reward for Josefina came with a recipe for a Piñón Nut Pastel (Pine Nut Pie) and I figured I already had a recipe tag on this blog….
The other individual short-story books have crafts and other stuff at the end of the book that I believe are absent from the short-story volume collections. Anyone interested in me scanning in those craft sections? Some of them are kinda lame (Wow! I wanna start my own bicycle club! How do I do that AG?), but maybe some folks really want to see them?
