A friend (Guinevere Barber, check her out here) and I decided to do a collaboration piece together over break, mostly for fun. We decided to do the ABCs, you know those things in Day Cares or Elementary schools, "A is for Apple" etc. ?

Well, we decided to illustrate each letter, including an animal and object together that both start with the same letter. So we each took 13 letters, assigning ourselves every other letter. She started with A and I took B (as well as D,F,H,J,L,N,P,R,T,V,X, and Z).

We were supposed to work on it over break, but you know how that can be. Family and holidays easily distract.

I have yet to add the letters and I still want to play with background color in Photoshop . . . but here's what I have thus far: ^_^

Bb bat and balloons

Jj jellyfish and jump rope

Nn narwhal and necklace

Tt turtle and trampoline

all of them were done in watercolor and colored pencil


  1. so cute! Someday I'll need a poster/flashcards for a baby SUlly

  2. Very cute,but I think the bat with the balloons should've had Becky written on his t-shirt ... :)

  3. oops he's not wearing a tshirt-maybe a Black t-shirt with Becky on it

  4. Very cute, but is there really such a thing as a narwhal?

  5. Those are adorable! Love it! Can Aeris have one? :-)
