Pride and Star greeting cards by Linda for sale

The 2nd greeting card here is a tribute to #LGBTPride month. It’s June! Traditional time to celebrate Alternative Sexuality!

The 1st greeting card has Mount Shasta in the background, and yarrow plus California poppies in the foreground with Star, one of my cartoon characters.



Hot off the presses! Just now did this. I like hands! 9×12″ sketchbook, with Prismacolor and Pitt pen. I am inspired by the fact Darrell Fusaro doodles daily! My fave quote from him, “When I first do the things on my To Do List that I am most enthusiastic about, everything else gets done effortlessly!”

Wassayaks Psychedelic scene from my sketchbook

     I borrowed from a wall mural at a local wifi cafe.  Andrew, one of the owners, just had a baby girl!  Micah is his brother.  They serve up coffee, tea, bagels, panini and salads, etc.  I borrowed light and shadow from the table next to me.  Added the chandelier, and turned a Millennial male customer with flowered grey shorts on into T-Rex.  

     I saw a T-Rex puppets at the nearby ePuppets store.  I am praying for an economic healing in Mount Shasta.  So sorry to see Village Books and Crystal Angels close!  Boo!

Shasta Angels Flying Kites – commissioned art 

Danielle is the proprietor of ePuppets on North Mount Shasta Blvd!  He’s my biggest collector.  I name him “a believing mirror”.  Every artist needs at least one!  He sells children’s toys and games.  I encourage all travelers along I-5 in Northern California to stop by and buy some toys!  Parents and grandparents take note!  Below is Danielle with his Altar….

Justin, Mountie, and Canuck

At left is an RCMP cop, also known as a “Mountie” in Canada.  At the top is Justin Trudeau, the current PM of Canada.  I’m glad he replaced Stephen Harper!  At right is a Vancouver Canuck hockey player.  Vancouver is the capital city (I think) of the British Columbia Province, which is on the lower left coast of Canada.  I have been there.  I was 11, and I remember it as cold and foggy.  I was VERY startled by a giant foghorn, which blasted out the first notes of “O Canada”, their national anthem!
