Vanessa stole my comment! This is too adorable. But, given the weather of late, I'd venture to say they're not puddle jumping in Houston (puddles zren't big enough) or in San Antonio (there are no puddles, unless you count those formed by my neighbor's sprinkler!).

This is just too adorable Eric! Your girls have a very talented dad/hubby :o)

Chiqui told me to tell you that she is just a little, cute, lovebird. No hard feelings ok? Peep! ;o)

Eric, I saw this over at the PBJs blog and I thought it could not be any more perfect! The mood and softness of the piece really translate a lot of love. Your 'girls' look so adorable. Wonderful illustration!

Spectacular work as always, Eric! I love your style. The buildings/foggy background is among the best I've seen in quite some time. Truly great.

Bella Sinclair said...

Now THIS, this is the silver lining in that raincloud. What a beautiful family. Not even the rain can dampen their spirits. Little ones always like the puddles, don't they? They must seem like little lakes to them. :) Beautiful background, beautiful illo. I noticed the tag said Greeting Cards -- is this, by chance, could it be??? How wonderful!

how you do all this vector art that looks so easy?? And I know it's not easy to complete a detail and fine illustration like it!

Holly (from the fam) said...

Oh my I love this one. Of course, I can totally see the youngest without an umbrella, stomping around in the puddles. That's soooo her! I'm really enjoying checking out your work. Sorry it's taken me a month to finally make it here.
