Mystery of the Ball Jar Caper

My work station changes often, depending on my mood, what project is pressing on the schedule, what I WANT to do, what kid happens to be sitting at my desk, etc.... this is one of my projects. An illustration (one of two) for a children's book project that I am collaborating with my bff on ...

R is for “Robot Ride ’em Cowboy!”

"Robot Ride 'em Cowboy!" watercolor on ampersand aquabord, 4 x 4" At some point I had to do a horse. Little did I know that one would walk into my house tonight in the shape of a LEGO horse! Oh yea. With a cowboy robot lego dude. The perfect combination for my "R" painting. I ...

L is for “Lego Enemies! *Diabolical Laughter Follows*”

"Lego Enemies!" Watercolor on Ampersand Aquabord, 5 x 7" Yes, this is what happened before the Penguin became trapped himself in the jar. He pissed off the wrong super hero.

C is for “Captured! That Crazy Penguin!”

"Captured! That Crazy Penguin!" watercolor on aquabord, 5 x 7" Funny thing is, by the look on his face, I think he is clueless as to the fact that he is trapped in that jar... he is quite mad, you see... Quite the silly grin on his face, you can almost imagine what he is ...

B is for “Batman and Aquaman, Hangin’ Out.”

"Batman and Aquaman, Hangin' Out." watercolor on Aquabord, 8 x 10" So, there actually IS a before picture where Batman and Aquaman were trapped inside the ball jar and Batman escaped by pushing the lid off and crawled out, leaving Aquaman (rather ticked off) still stuck inside the jar. But I skipped that one to ...
