Illustration for a rhyming story called Robby the Roo.
Click on image to enlarge.Have a look at Robby's eyes in the second pic. The only thing I photo shopped. Guess I need more practice aye! LOL
Robby the Roo
built a canoe
with intentions of sailing away
he built it you see
from a eucalypt tree
it took him three weeks and a day!.........
Yes it goes on for quite a bit.

A bit silly but this actually happens. We are all told to stand perfectly still when you see a snake. This doesn't work with those big tree goannas. Their eyesight's not too good. If they panic they'll head right up the nearest thing they think might be a tree. It's a little unnerving wouldn't you say?!
Australia's a strange place.

Mutants in the Fridge (228 words)
By Ronda Eden
Slimy bits of watermelon and all this yukky goo
Something green and furry, something all gone black
Some chips all dried and shriveled and what looks like a Big Mac!
No one likes to clean the fridge they’d rather let it be
They’re scared to take the lids off things
They’re scared of what they’ll see
The meat’s gone green and slimy and it’s really on the nose
The cheese has grown an overcoat and all the spuds have toes!
The veggies are quite clever, they take care of themselves
They turn themselves to liquid and move to other shelves
And if they’re left there long enough, they head toward the door
Then when you open up the fridge, they ooze onto the floor
Each day they’re growing bigger and changing shape and color
Some are getting brighter and some are getting duller
One day they might turn into, huge gigantic toads
And just keep getting bigger until the fridge explodes!
Then what a job will that be, to clean up that big mess
We’ll have to think of something
We’ll have to move I guess
Just thinking of this makes me tried
And makes me hungry too
But there mutants in the fridge and I don’t know what to do.

Have You Ever Had a Hot dog?
Have you ever had a hot dog
that you wore instead of ate?
The type that makes a gooey mess.
The type your parents hate!
Did the ketchup run all over you
and all over your clothes?
Did it make a bright red sticky river
from your chin down to your toes?
Did you have another, then another
then another one?
Did you make a super hot dog mess?
Did you have a heap of fun?
Well if you had a hot dog
that you worn instead of ate,
the messy gooey icky type,
the type you parents hate
consider yourself lucky
'cause when all is said and done
the one that doesn't make a mess
is the one that's .....just no FUN!

New character drawings for Peggy Lou the Emu. Note Peggy Lou's head is larger to add more 'cute appeal' she no longer carries a book and pencil and I've given her sneakers that are too big for her. I have also changed my colored pencil and ink technique.
