New art in progress, Balookey's Moleskine Sketchbook

I am sorry to report that my scanner is still not working, so I have tried to photograph the pieces I am working on.  The first one is a collaboration with Andrea.

Collaboration with Andrea,
PITT Faber Castel pigment pens and colored pencil

day 1

The second piece is the one I am currently working on, showing two stages of work. It is for my book, Frankie and Noah have a party.  I've never had any serious art classes, so this is not a tutorial, as I may be going about it all wrong.

day 2

After a week of work I still haven't got the first layer of paint down!
This is with a different camera!
Getting the colors right without a good scanner is a pain!
Day 8 on this piece
Still not finished!

Collaboration, 1st half, for Mike
The last piece is a collaboration for Mike to finish.  My intention was to do a simple graphic black and white but I got carried away and colored it.  "The owl and the Pussycat went to sea/ in a beautiful pea green boat."

Glad you got carried away with the colour. Did Mike ever finish his half?

Above comment was about the Owl and the Pussy Cat.

I also love the snake with his head through a round opening.
