Happy Pantry: That's one chili pepper!

It's getting quite chilly again, and that necessitates the pulling out of heavy winter gear.  Even hot stuff like chili peppers have to bundle up.

We usually refrain from the cheesy pink cheeks which seem to be very prevalent in kawaii illustrations - but this is one of the few times it's called for but only because the cold makes the extremities extra freezy.

Whatcha Eatin' Adelia?

 Whatcha eatin' Adelia?
How rude!

I was developing Adelia a few years ago as a cute penguin - and my version of Hello Kitty if I was to design a cute girl character.  I even got as far as development on a children's book as well as a handful of illustrations - but stalled out when I drew the Squaremania characters (Paddy Panda) as a supplement to Adelia, and then they quickly eclipsed her in my interest.

I went to a children's book illustrator meeting where I had an editor look at my portfolio.  She didn't get Adelia and said that kids would question why she didn't have a mouth (because she wasn't designed with one because she doesn't need one...not to mention the fact that the more I developed her, the less like a penguin she looked).  So I went home and redrew the top image with the bottom one and added a mouth.  So it's possible for her to have one, if she needs it - but I don't think she needs it.

New episode of Spongebob this weekend!

This weekend there's a new episode of Spongebob!

I drew a tooth.

Lollipoop rough

It's tough being a lolli - especially when it comes time to poop.  Skinny butts always slip through the hole...but better when one sits down than once one has commenced....

This is very clearly a Happy Pantry rejected illustration...but I knew that going in.
