First up I want to say happy Halloween to all ya'll Craftside readers. I hope your day is filled with nothing but sweet treats...Okay, well maybe a fun trick or two. A lot of my friends and their kids seem to be embracing the combo-costume this year. An example would be "zombie nurse" or I went to a family party as Hello Kitty cowgirl. I felt like a bit of imaginary animal fun might be in order today. This exercise for drawing animals within an jigsaw-like doodle featured in the book Drawing and Painting Imaginary Animals: A Mixed-Media Workshop with Carla Sonheim looks like a whole bunch of fanciful fun!
