Treat! Cookie Box

cookie_box

Here’s a last minute entry I created for a fun cookie box design contest on Where Women Create. Besides enjoying the wide range of styles and techniques that went into all the wonderful entries, I love the creativity the organizers put into styling all the photos! I would’ve loved to participate in that part, too (including sampling the treats, obviously). For some pretty art (and goodies) to drool over, check out the rest of the entries!

Dancing Lion

Summertime is in full swing. The days are nice and long, which reminds me that the zoo will have extended hours for the next couple of months. It’s always a treat to see the animals that only begin to stir when the sun starts to set. I especially like the chance to watch big cats doing something other than flicking an ear at a bothersome gnat. You’re not likely to catch any wild kitties doing pirouettes, but they might inspire a quick character sketch or two – like this one I did of a lion cub, taking a twirl in her new grass tutu. I decided to try on a few facial expressions, too. Ballet training brings out a range of emotion, no doubt!
