I finished Magic Trixie and the Dragon a bit over a week ago ( I am so happy with it! I think I might like it the best! but I always like the one I just finished the best. Until the next one!) and I got all distracted with going to Bouchercon with Brian and preparing for my upcoming trip to London to visit the new baby that I forgot to post more art! So, In honor of the new baby, and all the babies I know, I decided to post a page with Abby Cadabra on it. I love drawing her! Just like Magic Trixie is an amalgam of all of my nieces when they were about 6, Abby Cadabra is a reflection of all that 'tripod baby' stage. Where you put them on the floor and their legs kinda naturaly bow out, and they are a perfect tripod. And they have those two rat teeth on the bottom for scraping apple slices and zwieback. They are a good armful of baby...and they say "BUH" and "KEE!" and "DA!". And they are just starting to be able to giggle and it's the most wonderful true sound you've ever heard. It kinda hiccups out of them! I wish I had that recorded somewhere so when I am sad, I could play it back and it would make me smile!
