Pinocchio is a cautionary tale all around.

I’m a little hesitant to post my progress of the illo. I took a break from it while working on the new website design. I’ve reworked the cricket. The first one was a little creepy. I’m worried that Jiminy is looking a bit roach like. But crickets are more often black, although mt dad fished with tan ones. Disney’s cricket has a greenish face…that’s a grasshopper to me. Also I need to be careful of the line quality of the cricket compared to the line on Pinocchio. The line work on him is softer, although that may change as a rework the color. I guess an image looking overworked isn’t just reserved for real media.

I must proceed with caution.

I’m becoming impatient about getting my new website up and running so I thought I would appease myself by posting a little tidbit that I plan to incorporate. I think I must have a sweet tooth. My daughter thinks we should go out for ice cream. I know what I want with my ice cream, Yum

High among the leaves
Bad ideas ripen well
Ready to hit me.

Grounded ideas
Make spoiled imagination
Taste better than pie.
