Down the Rabbit Hole


Long time since I’ve been to Wonderland! So, Alice again. In gouache.

Sow Thistle Prince


Watercolor, gouache, and please feel free to make your own story for this picture…

Ghost Ladies


There are ten of them, all together. Heroines of a funny poem by Dorie Deats.

You Sleep Here


Coffee-break drawing with ink and pastel pencils

Children Behind the Mirror


Another scene from “Coraline’. Coraline is locked by the Other Mother in a niche behind the mirror, when ghost children come to ask her for help.

The Show


Miss Spink and Miss Forcible, “Coraline” by Neil Gaiman. Great show at the dog theatre. An experiment with acrylic paint.

B like Babette


Babette saves ballerina. Cat story is finished, and Dorie is working on a new children’s book now. This is a set of slightly surreal poems based on alphabet, one poem for each letter. This picture is for “B”.

Mo and Christmas Tree

Next Christmas picture is book-related. Mo the Cat and the girl named Emma – Mo calls her “Ma” – are two characters from a story written by Dorie Deats, “Mo’s Little Giant” (on Amazon now!) Cats are excellent tree decorators and Emma appreciates a little help, I’m sure. Gouache and pencils. Merry Christmas to everyone!xxxmo_treedecorating
