IF Refresh


updated version

I'm trying to "refresh" my style with some silly creatures ;)


*So, my husband let me know that the sweet face just didn't work with him trying to catch monsters so I revised him. Now he is at least a little fierce. ;)

  5. Hi Karen, you are really very fast, I read that you had wanted to change something in your blog, and when I came, it was done!

    Congratulations, looks very new, fresh air is always welcome :)
    I agree with your husband, naughty boy's face looks better
    Thanks for your kind comment, using my non-dominant hand, with brushes was not so bad, but the drawing looks horrible ;((((((((((((
    Good week for you!

  6. Ah, he totally looks fierce! I just love these! I am such a big fan of cute and colorful and goofy monsters. And in such a wonderfully three dimensional space. Oh my gosh I love the sock monkey and the bright red rocket. So great!

  12. Wow wow WOW :) And I don't give out three WOW's very often. In fact i don't think I have ever given out a TRIPLE WOW AWARD. (Thats TWA for short) :)

    Karen, this looks b&^&^%^%dy marvellous. It's really splendiferous, it's just like a kid's book! But better. Lots of glow and joy and just FUN.

    Yes I award yo the Inaugural Triple Wow Award!
    But seriously, this is real good stuff. And I'm not just saying that cause you are my friend.

  17. Thank you so much for your comment Karen. BTW, I disabled comments on my blog starting today. Those who disagree think they are extreme. Of course that was the soundbite they used, was that that Democrat senator from New York? What's his name I cannot remember at the moment. He thought the conference call has not started and he was hammering the campaign to call the conservatives "extremists." Worked for the Democrats. Apparently I am an extremist to some.

  21. I love your blog title. I just vacummed under the cushions of my sofa and found a similar experience. Your night scene is really fun. You never know what might be hanging around in the dark to go bump or squish in the night...

  22. Zoweeeeee!!! Karen!! I'm jumpin' up and down staring at this. Your work is so fresh and full of life. I'm so excited for this refreshed style of yours that I know you are on to big, big things. Your husband's comment really knocked it outta the park here. Sometimes hubbies surprise us, right? HA! I hope you've been well and thank you so so much for your sweet words at my blog.
