Pooh And Friends



My new illustration series features Pooh and friends.

This series is very special to me as it was inspired by one of my favorite childhood illustrators, E.H. Shepard, with his delightfully wonderful illustrative style. It was also inspired by Alan (A.A.) Milne's whimsical stories of a boy, a bear and a supporting cast of cuties. These lovable fellows have made bed time so much easier for generations.

Illustrators like E.H. Shepard are people with sheer talent that I admire. Each creates something out of a carefree sketch style that has so much emotion...simply GENIUS! :) ...someday I hope to achieve that talent as well with my own illustrative style. Thank you for the inspiration, E.H.!

I love Pooh!!! I think Piglet is my favorite. Hallmark published a greeting card years ago that showed Pooh and Piglet walking and holding hands and the caption read
"Pooh" said Piglet
"Yes Piglet" said Pooh
inside the card...
"Oh, nothing...I just wanted to be sure of you" said Piglet

I loved the sweet illustration and the loving sentiment of that card...priceless!
