This is an illustration I created for Picture-Bookies Showcase theme, Friends. But I got to tell you, it works just fine for this week's Illustration Friday word, Rejection.

Why, you might ask? Because, this is an illustration I created based on my chapter book manuscript, HOW TO MILK A DINOCOW. And that particular manuscript was just sent off for the thirteenth time (having been rejected twelve times). You can read about feeling lucky to find out more.

Or if you want to have some fun, visit the dinocow website to see this little puppy in action. Don't forget to click on the milk bottle!

very nice! I have a large rejection pile myself :P Your style reminds me of Stephen Gammell, but I think I've said that before. He's one of my faves!

Oh Ian, this is still so great! I love the way it fits so many themes. But for me this is the perfect place to display it. The illustration leaves me wondering what will happen next. So, Ian, will you show us what happens next? Great work as always!
