The first thing that came to mind for "Layers" was a cake with many layers. Then I remembered I had an image on hand for this. I made this last year for the invitation to my father's 70th birthday party. The mouse in the red jogging suit is a character in stories my father used to make up for us. Celebrations with my family always involve many cakes so it wouldn't do to show just one. And yes, there are 70 candles!

After staring at the computer too much doing design work and my Valentine Kitties illustration, I decided to just color my sketch in with colored pencils. This little girl is my favorite. Below she's shown with the rest of her friends, all modeling sweaters that don't really exist outside of my imagination. If I had tons of time and yarn, I probably could knit these things. I don't think any cat would really be into wearing any sweater but it's fun to imagine it.

I had originally wanted to post this for last week's Illustration Friday theme of reverse but a bunch of things came up and I never got around to finishing it until now. Just in time for Valentine's Day!

Initially, I didn't know what I was going to do so I just starting drawing a face in my sketchbook and this is what I came up with. I don't know who this young woman is surrendering to or why. She seems non-chalant about it so I think she may still have another pistol or a dirk hidden in her boot.
