Illustration Friday AND ..Picture Bookies Challenge for January 2007


My friend Julia Kelly a fellow member of the
  • Picture-Bookies Writer/Illustrator group
  • challenged our group with this phrase "Out with the Old, In with the New" . This is so appropriate for the new year as we say goodbye somewhat reluctantly to the past with a brief look over our shoulder and make way for new events in our lives in 2007. May you all have a fantastic 2007!

    You can see more from the Picture-Bookies on their blog
  • HERE.


  • The Illustration Friday Challenge had me thinking for a while, but I remembered my favorite dance music and dance of the 80s the Electric Slide. Gosh that is fun...for me more fun to watch than to try to remember which is my left turn or right turn, but fun at all levels. No time today for a biggie, but merely a kinda sketch, and the instructions to the dance, in case you want to get up from your chair and give it a try!

    I confess: I got up and followed the instructions... not a pretty sight, I fear. But bravo to your interactive post and to getting us off our duffs.

    You know the reception isn't over until YMCA, Hokey Pokey, Chicken Dance, Locomotion, and the Electric Slide have been played. Did I miss any?
