I've been drawing a lot of cute babies and fuzzy animals lately. I needed a little break so I doodled some pirates the other night. I also wanted to play with textures in Photoshop. Of course, I made the captain a woman.
I wasn't really trying to draw anyone in particular but this guy came out looking like some weird evil-pirate version of Cary Grant. Of course, if I actually wanted to draw an evil-pirate version of Cary Grant I probably couldn't do it.

I just read the picture book "The Incredible Book Eating Boy" by Oliver Jeffers and I loved it. My 6-year-old son loved it too. Which is a big endorsement considering there were no monster trucks or tractors in it. I loved the collage illustrations and it inspired me to try my hand at a collage-y type thing. I guess it's because I'm a mom, but this was the first thing that pops into my head when I hear emergency.
