Illustration Friday: Enough

Even though they were like ducks to water, Rupert and Mildred had
had enough of all the flooding in the Midwest.

I haven't posted in forever, and I have been really missing participating in Illustration Friday. I needed a little break to enjoy all the wonderful summer weather, and to get all my ducks in a row. It should be known that even if you do manage to get your ducks in one single row that getting them all to face forward is a whole other matter all together.

The last few weeks I've been working on some other projects which I hope to share here soon. Tomorrow though, I'm off to San Diego for 6 days to meet up for a mini-reunion with some of my ol' college chums, and to attend Comic-Con. This is my first year attending a conference of this magnitude, and my first time on the west coast, so I'm unbelievably excited!!

How awesome!! I was wondering if any IFers would be attending.

If anyone has any good restaurant recommendations, I'd love to hear. :)

So whimsical! I love the endearing ducks. A great pair. Their matching clothes are fun, too!

These are great ducks! So cute, even if they are tired of being wet. And I love the photo, too.

Cory Godbey is a wonderful artist who's also an IFer. I believe he'll be at Comic-Con at a small press booth. You should check out his work.

These ducks are the cutest ever! Love the photo as well. Really great to see your work today, I've been going through withdrawals, hee hee!

My San Diego contacts never got back with me on restaurants, but I know you'll have fun in Old Town for sure. Have a super duper time at Comic Con!
