  5. I would love this on my wall. You always capture the essence of who or whatever in your drawings Lizzie. Here, the sweetness of a little girl happy with just her balloon.

  11. Adorable, as always! My nephew used to call them "banoons", and I've loved them even more ever since. That paper is intriguing with the subtle texture. Might I ask what it is?

    1. Thanks, E. I have a whole bunch of ideas. I'm waiting to see which one of my characters elbows his/her way to the fore. So far, it's a race between a pig and a cat ;) How kind of you to inquire :)

    1. Thanks, Claire! The paper actually looks a little funky, since I took this with my iphone. It's color in reality is a little more even. I forgot to scan it before I sent it off across the country!
