The Family Request!

My Rockin' Request:

This request has been so exciting for me.  A family!  A whole family!!!  Pets included!!!  I want to update you as I do each member.  The mom is the requester.  She is known as Daddy Long Legs because of her super long legs which will transfer well into pillow monster form.  Her descriptions of each member of her family are soooo great.  She also gave me a link to her blog for visuals, and if you are like me you will be drooling over her children's awesome childhood.  Seeing the fun they have makes me want to have kids right away and then get started on a tree fort with them!  So far I have the eldest daughter done and the son.

Below are some of my preliminary drawings.

Here is the oldest girl.  She plays a pink, acoustic guitar.  That's right, a PINK, ACOUSTIC GUITAR! 

The son has dimples, loves the Cubs and Super heros.  I am not sure what his super power is.  Maybe some kind of amazing ability to make Cubs tickets appear in his pocket.

And, of course the flying would really help with the avoidance of Chicago traffic.

So here are the siblings...  Next week I plan on doing 2 more, so stay tuned as the family is pillow monstered.

On a personal note---I have a job interview on Monday for something that could be potentially great!
