another day, another beagle

Can you spot a grumpy beagle? That's what you get when you interrupt Pokey taking a nap.

I'm not the only one who's drawing beagles this week. Check out France's beautiful portrait of Jasper. Wow, I love every one of France's posts, but this one really catches my heart.

OMG! He's SO cute! What a great drawing -- I love how you capture his expressions so well!

Yes, Suzanne, all the grumpiness is in that right eye!!! The looseness of the stroke goes so well with the subject.
Thank you!!!
Can't wait to see pictures (JPEG, PNG, whatever - we're both Mac users, right?).

Tom tells me to tell you that he got bit by a dog once when he was about 10 years old. The dog was a BEAGLE named (are you ready?!) POKEY. Apparently, the dog didn't take too kindly to Tom riding his cousin's Big Wheel.

Sorry -- i could have fit all this in one comment... but my brain doesn't always operate that way :-)

You really did draw that grumpy expression so well! Love your drawings! Thanks for your series suggestion on my blog - already has my rolling for my next drawing opportunity!

Suzanne--

You and France Belleville are tops when in comes to drawing. Your line art of Pokey is so simple and nice. When the two of you POST--I listen and observe!!!!!

Wow - just read France's comment about Tom being bit by a beagle named Pokey?! How strange!

I always wonder how do you make beauty and expression seem so simple. Looking at your drawings always makes me want to draw!
