a departure from the food

have you all been over to Mike Leonen's blog? it's called Something About Parenting. it's something you should check out. Mike writes really fun and thought-provoking posts on the ins and outs of parenting. he's also a phenomenal artist. this is one of his, called Banana Slide (i chose one with food in it to try and keep it on task with the food blog here). i love this illustration!


Mike did some work for me over Christmas last year. he altered 2 photos for me--one of each of my kids. and the came out just fabulous. i would love to show you, but the hubby doesn't want me to post photos of the kiddos faces. so i don't. the work mike did was really cool. he made a picture of my son in his baseball cap and baseball glove just POP with vibrant color. he drew baseball bats and baseballs around the edges and added some fun text. for my daughter who was only 3 months old, he made her close-up all soft and warm and golden. truly lovely. i highly recommend Mike. if want a special gift or a keepsake for yourself, send him some pictures of your kids. you won't be sorry you did!

Thanks for posting this link! Sounds like a neat website, and I've been wanting some cool and original artwork for my 7 month old son.
