  1. really cute. if my memory serves me right, i think my childhood ride was a firetruck complete with ladders. hmm... now that i think about it, maybe that's not such a good idea for a toddler. anyhow, cheers.

  6. I LOVE your style. the illo is super cute, I especially like his little feet sticking out from the bottom of the plane. Reminds me of the Flinstones (one of my childhood faves)

  9. Love it! It reminds me of a toy firetruck my grandfather had on his farm. We played forever on that rusty thing.

    thanks a lot!
    New Brunswick is pretty good, There is a lot to be admired, I have lived all my life in a big loud city and I like how relaxed NB is.
    as for work, nothing canadian or north american yet, just positive potentials from some people I contacted but no promises or actual jobs yet. but I still do some freelance work for people I used to work for in Egypt and some other clients from the middle east.
    anyway hopefully soon I will get there in Canada haha. my goal is to work from home as a freelance llustrator. if you want to let me know anything you would like to point out to me plase email me :)
