2012 Chatsworth Cranberry Festival

The 2012 Cranberry Festival Booklet Cover
and three inside pages are done!! YAY!!!

I decided to stay with the flat tire painting this year,
but finished the other one with the couple too.
(That'll be backup for next year.)

Here's a sneak peek . . . 
Each year I add something fun to the book.
Designing a crossword puzzle was a new one for me!

Do you ever get started on something and have second
thoughts, wondering where you get these bright ideas?

It was a little scary at first. I never do crosswords myself.
Keeping it simple, the challenge was met
and it actually ended up being fun!

This new JD image is now available here on iStock.

Got any Jersey Devil stories?
I'd love to come up with a special theme for next year!
It'll be the 30th Annual festival.

(Please Send me your ideas.)
Here's my new ad for this year's book, using
one of my best selling images on iStockphoto.
What do you think?

It just seemed natural to share these pages here.
Most of these were posted this summer as drawings.
Sometimes it's nice to see how images evolve
and a variety of ways they might be used.

The Jersey Devil and the Flat Tire

Another summer of SketchingEveryday has come to an end.
It went by so fast! Posting every few days made it a lot easier.
I may keep posting here from time to time throughout the year.
In the meantime, you may want to follow my main blog here.

I just announced my first Fall Giveaway yesterday!
Be sure to check it out and add your comment to enter.

Ending the 2012 Summer Sketching Series,
here's another idea I had featuring the Jersey Devil
for the Cranberry Festival booklet cover.
Do you think it's spooky enough?

There's another Jersey Devil painting on the boards too!
Stay tuned, because I may need your input
to help me decide which one to use.

I hope you enjoyed this year's offerings.
I am grateful for your comments and friendship!

"Delicious autumn! 
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns."  ~ George Eliot
