Illustration Friday: Fleeting

Peony and the Prince
11 x 14

For a fleeting moment, the frog prince wistfully thought about how much easier his life would be if he were to stay a frog forever. But alas, reality was calling and the fairy was ready to change him back.

.:.:.
Abracadabra,
Alakazam,
Turn this frog
Back into a man!
.:.:.:.

Here is my finally finished illustration, just in time for Illustration Friday's topic of Fleeting.

I love this little frog prince!

Thanks for all of your support, my lovely bloggers. I was so frustrated with this illustration yesterday and was all set to give up after ruining page after page of drawing paper. But after a nice cup of tea and the rest of those little cupcakes (which, as it turns out judging by my waistline, were not fat-free after all), I was able to sit down with a clear head and finish!

Also, I'm in an interview feature today, this time on Holly's blog over at Winklepots and Random Thoughts (one of my favorite blogs, by one of my favorite peeps), so go on by and check it out here: http://winklepots.blogspot.com

Happy Friday!
xoxo,

Whoot! Congratulations on finishing it (and persevering). Persistence paid off.

That frog is amazingly charming (I'd plant one on him if he wandered across my path). :)
