The illo I have submitted is a Romantic Wintertime Greeting Card, where the characters are having while sleigh riding in the snow. Wish I could do the same right now!

As per the blog's description on Twitter, Illustration Rally "is a massive international rolling collaboration which takes a theme and runs with it," and it is managed by the lovely Natsuki Otani-- a U.K. based illustrator with wonderful illustrations, whose work can be seen at: http://www.natsukiotani.co.uk/.
Another blog I am a new fan of is "Web of Whimsy," where for this week's challenge I am submitting a Romantic/Valentine's Day Card I made some time ago. Submission is below!
However, truth be told, I am quite tired from a near all nighter (O, Delayed Travel, What Fun Thou Art) so I do not recall exactly what the card said on the inside. In any case, other cards like this one, in the Romantic/Valentine's Day vein, can be found here on this portion of my website: http://drawdvl.com/romantic-cards.html.

Speaking of Tchaikovsky and his great works, I saw "Black Swan" earlier this week-hence the above screencap.

I believe this card of mine was blank. While I love making up captions and puns and things to make people smile or laugh, I also make cards without anything inside so they are able to personalized. The original can be found in the cards for "Family and Friends" section of my website: http://drawdvl.com/family-and-friends-cards.html.
Check back next week to see the newest Wizard of Whimsy! This week's was Nicole, and her work can be seen here: http://ghostkittendesign.blogspot.com/2010/12/savour.html?spref=fb.For this week's great contributions to Web of Whimsy, please go to: http://dthaase.blogspot.com/2010/12/whimsical-wednesday-wk-5.html
Until then, signing off.

As a lover of childhood, children's books, cartoon characters, and other such things, I am happy to have found Web of Whimsy. For this week, my submission is a newly created Holiday Greeting Card. Shown Below:
"Hope Your Holidays Are The Cat's Meow!"
That's the whimsical caption inside that illustrated greeting card.-
In any event, should you also want to make a whimsical submission, the instructions are here: http://dthaase.blogspot.com/p/how-do-i-play.html. For the main portion of the site, go here: http://dthaase.blogspot.com/.
"The common human experience is suffering - sorrow and sadness mark much of the world. My invitation is to bring a bit of delight into the despair. I spend a lot of time with children and in turn they have taught me how to play. So, come and join the fun."
This quote from "Web Of Whimsy" made me smile, and I hope makes other Whimsical People submitting to the site smile as well.

I am working on Winter themed and Holiday Time themed cards right now, but as a break from all the cold snowy themed things, I am posting an illustration with some fun. Or some sun. Possibly, both. Hopefully, both! I should carry on and stop typing because my tired-self is rambling.
This greeting card says "You Quack Me Up, Babe!" Because of the puns of the little girl with her ducky friends, both the toy one and the regular one.
As this illo has birds, I want to also share this quote about birds:
"Those little nimble musicians of the air, that warble forth their curious ditties, with which nature hath furnished them to the shame of art." Izaak Walton
It may not apply as much to ducks, as quacks aren't as melodious as, say, nightingales... but it's a nice quote, nonetheless.
In closing, I'm going to share the information for Crewest Gallery's Sharpie II Show! This Saturday, December Fourth, the opening starts at Six in the Evening and runs until Nine. Press Release and Details can be found here: http://blog.crewest.com/2010/11/press-release-sharpie-show-ii.html
Well, that is all for now, everyone.
Thanks for reading! :-)
