I worked on this little book a while back and found out that is now available!
It's a cute bath time board book featuring a bunny! I love drawing bunnies so I was thrilled when the people at Highlights asked if I wanted to create a bunny family for this book. I'll share a few pics of the inside once I receive my copies. :o)
This book is part of a set published by Highlights for Children
and it's along the lines of their new Hello Magazine
for little ones. You can learn more about these books and order some if you like by clicking here
...because bunnies can be artists too ;)
(also my submission for this week's IF theme ~ egg)

said no bunny ever.
just a quick little sketch of some easter cuteness :)
LOVE cute little bunnies!
I did an Illustration Friday image for the word prompt, "Eye-Glasses" and posted it on my blog, then thought I'd rework it just a bit and post over here. Please check out the rest of the images posted on Illustration Friday. Good stuff, y'all!Paula's BlogPaula's Website
Thought I'd put up some Easter-related items here, since we are into March. This is part of a licensing package I've been working on.
well, the first day of March has officially arrived, which means spring is not too far off. happy for most people right? not so much for me, as winter is my favorite season and we seem to have gotten shafted of yet another really snowy winter (which makes the arrival of spring even harder for me to digest) :(
anyhoo...my beautiful aquamarine hued mermaid, Beryl, has been featured in a treasury over at etsy welcoming in the new month. take a peek at some of the other interesting pieces she has featured in shades of the calming and peacefully beautiful aquamarine.
below are some crops of March themed illustrations and their links, where you can purchase prints of them.
oh, and Easter is early this year (March 24th) so i believe there may be a CUTE little bunny FOR SALE in my shop as well, an ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWING. check him out, if you will....:)
Little known fact: The Easter Bunny moonlights the rest of the year for some extra scratch.
Get ready for our new IFK promo postcard! This time the theme is Valentine's Day. I just finished my artwork today. As you can see... they're on a date.
and their ADORABLE arctic pals alabaster, the arctic bunny and snowball, the polar bear cub:)
these lovely little fairies (sisters, of course) are now listed FOR SALE in my etsy shop here
these are ORIGINAL PAINTINGS done on gallery wrapped canvases and would make a perfect addition to any little girl's room. winter, or any time of year!:)
My quickie of a contribution to this week’s Illustration Friday prompt: “capable”. Be sure and check out the other fabulous entries at Illustration Friday!
the all new echidna 2012's...with absorba-prickle shock and replaceable um, spines?a lil piece for the bunny blog. "-)
Refreshing part of an old drawing as a warm-up exercise.
Easter's a comin' ... my sketch for today ..
so, after much *debating* with myself, i have decided to start selling some ORIGINAL pencil drawings. that way, i get to draw almost every day and you get ORIGINAL art at an AFFORDABLE price. "win win" right....?:)
let's start with this ADORABLE little baby bunny, who obviously has a little *something* behind his back....
Posted a cartoon caption challenge over on Writer Unboxed: The Easter Bunny and The Editor.
The Great Bunnimundo wondered if introducing blueberry pancakes
to his act was a good idea afterall.
This week’s Illustration Friday’s prompt “Jump” lends itself to lots of ideas, so I might just use it as a warm-up for the week.
Below is an illustration where I played around with type and a painterly style.
Our group is busy working on our summer mailer with the theme of "beach". I decided to create a scene with some friendly animal characters. As you can see this rabbit is taking a break after creating her sand castle while her friends are having fun in the water!
I did this bunny and carrot car using paper scraps. I don't know what it is but I am just not loving the background. I can't let it go so I am probably going to change it.
I have several more animals and cars that I am working on so hopefully I will get the background figured out. What do you think?

In Babysitting SugarPaw, SugarPaw is a young bear who will be spending the evening with a babysitter, but is not happy about the situation.
“I don’t want a babysitter!”
Papa Bear assures SugarPaw everything will be okay, but SugarPaw is going to make sure that’s not true. First, he runs down and changes the rules chart.
……….No TV after 7 P.M.
……….No TV after 10 P.M.
……….No playing with paints
……….Play with paints.
Every rule on SugarPaw’s rules chart now has a counter rule designed to get the babysitter in trouble.
The babysitter is indeed the best around. Bonnie Whiskers knows just how to handle sneaky little bears who think they are too old for a babysitter. She lets SugarPaw get away with his rules, cleans up after the messes he deliberately makes, and does it all kindly. SugarPaw starts to feel guilty.
This is a cute book appropriate for any child who thinks they are too old for a sitter, getting a new babysitter, or who usually acts up for the babysitter. Kids will love the characters and the mischief SugarPaw tries to create. The story can be an icebreaker for parents with a child adamantly against a babysitter, regardless of age.
The illustrations by Kevin Scott Collier of adorable, funny, and bright-eyed characters enhance the story and increase the laugh factor of SugarPaw’s antics. Such as the one of SugarPaw sitting in an over-flowing bathtub, with the biggest smile on his face and looking like he is having the best time, while Bunny Whiskers looks on with a mop in her hand.
Babysitting SugarPaw is also a good bedtime story. It is a fast read, kids will love hearing the story night after night, and parents will not mind reading it repeatedly. I do wonder why Bunny Whiskers reads the rules chart—the correct rules chart—and then allows her charge to do a switch-a-roo on her. Maybe she felt SugarPaw needed some control over the situation, something kids usually do not have. Whatever the reason, the babysitter takes it all in stride giving us a wonderful time and a beautiful ending.

DOES MY TAIL LOOK BIG IN THESE JEANS?
Going from digital pencil to an actual pencil is eye opening. So much scanning and cleaning and tweaking and oy! But I will always have a soft spot for my good old, soft leaded pencil.
So for more sketchy goodness, why not check out my fellow SkADaMoers here. Oh, and if I’ve left anyone out or I have the wrong link or what not, give me a shout!
Happy Holidays, to everyone.
May wild dancing ensue...
