Throughout today, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, thoughts of the preciousness of people no matter what shade of skin they wear have been floating through my mind as I work.  


These little best friends popped into my brain and wanted to be here.  


That's how illustrations sometime work ~ most especially with character development. Sometimes there is a need for a specific character, and sometimes there isn't.  


Characters we create, whether written or illustrated can often rise up from experiences, or places we've been, or emotions we've noticed or felt, or from amazing people who care.  The kind of care that makes a difference.

I love these two precious sweeties. Their hair and their faces are wonderful. As is their sentiment. Where's the love button?
