Bouncing Baby B

AlphaBooks may be over, but my obsession with letters & text is still hopping right along! This is the first in a series of five illustrated letters that will make its proper debut next Monday. If you have been visiting this blog since around this time in 2011 you can probably guess what it's for. ;-)

I took some extreme liberties with the "B" (not to mention marsupial anatomy) in order to illustrate the word "bursiform"-- meaning shaped like a pouch.

I'll likely make some further tweaks & will post the other four images next week, but until then, I hope those of you who will be celebrating Thanksgiving this Thursday have a delectable holiday. I'm thankful to all of you who come this way!

  1. Well, look at that! That is no ordinary pouch. That is a limo!!! I love your series!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving and I'm grateful to have stumbled upon your work which is so inspiring.

  3. I wonder if my little son, who knows the Pooh characters now, would say "KAG-NA" when he saw this image.

  4. Awww! This is sweet! That little guy looks to have luxury accommodations! Have a wonderful holiday, Leah!
