A Brigade of Boys Bearing Gifts. My mind is on the Holidays, so when the word of the week came up brigade I thought "Toy Soldiers". These guys are similar to the close-pin solders I illustrated in my book "The Twelve Days Of Christmas" for the page, 12 drummers drumming.
Illustration Friday #23 "Round"
Round is my favorite shape. With Christmas just weeks away, my studio is hung with ornaments in various stages of completion. "Round" is an ornament for me this week.
