Friends of the Spooky Kind

In Frankie's younger days he had a thing for cute little Lili.
This is the couple at the fifth grade dance.

Oh my, you're such an inspiration! Seriously. I'm feeling really amateurish compared to you V. I love this! I love the colors, and I love the style. You get a big A+ from me girlfriend!

Hey thanks you guys! You are so very encouraging an I really need that now I just got turn down for a job that I really, really wanted. The editors the pieces that I did, but the art director thought that I wasn't right for the job! Needless to say I was disappointed. I didn't cry this time. Just wondering what I could have done to make it better. I will be posting the illustrations to my blog so everyone can see. Again, thank you ladies so very much for you kind words and great support!

Whomever turned you down will be so sorry! Your work is amazing--it's beautiful, delightful, fun to look at. (We'll send your Frankie after them!)
Glad you're upbeat! I need to practice that great attitude you have...you inspire all of us.

I love the look and feel of this image Vanessa! It reminds me of The Addams Family or something. Really fun!

I totally would have dated Frankie. I always had a thing for those weird creative types. Lili's one lucky lady.

Don't fret about the job. Everything happens for a reason! I don't think you could do anything better. It's just one of those weird art choices that people with power make. You're such an inspiration.

I had the same thing happen over a job at PBS kids, (I'll admit I cried) But my life is soooo much better and my job is sooo much better than it would have been if I'd have taken that path. You'll see. Everything will work out. I can tell you're destined for greatness.
