'Juh-Nayz New Ribbons - Color'

Digital Painting — October 2021

As I've expressed before — I've been going back
to older sketchbook drawings to digitally paint them.

In 2019, I created a number of drawings with
my niece's three children in mind. One afternoon, the
lovely Juh-Nay* popped outa me brain — invoking
the many summers I spent on my uncle's farm —
and you'll find that original sketch here.

*Pronounced like Tom Hanks' character
Forrest Gump said the name Jenny: Juh-Nay. : )

It's fun to say it the way he did — try it and if you
disagree I'll happily refund your admission price. : ?

Anyway, it was a blast to contrast my memories of those
loud squealing and mud wallowing pigs my uncle raised —
with the rather pristine Juh-Nay — enjoying her new ribbons
— complete with her pearl necklace and gold rings.

For the back ground I was inspired to
return to an old influence of mine: Disney story-board
artist and Children's book author and illustrator, Bill Peet
— in part due to a recent conversation about him I had with
a friend of mine while I worked to complete this one.

Bill Peet created many of the character designs for
Disney's 'The Sword and the Stone,' and 'Jungle Book,' to
name just two — and wrote and Illustrated the beloved
children's story Huge Harold as well as many others!
