Someone's in The Kitchen With Dinah...



...and they are NOT "Strummin' on the ol' banjo"!!!
This is my 4 page spread in Juli's Moly
"In the Kitchen"
for the 2012 Illustrated ATC G8 Moleskine exchange.
Sometime in late summer
"she" will make her way home to Juli
 in Canada...:)
"Fee Fi...Fiddlily Aye Oh"...:)
Click on images to enlarge...especially the last one.
Enjoy!

OH MY GOD! This is stupendously good and wonderful. My grandmother's kitchen in the 50's; her chairs, mix master, her and mom's bowls (I still have a few of them)...wow. The wall paper around the kitchen walls. Such detail. Such beauty. Such ART!!!! What a lucky person to get these pages. AWESOME!!! BRAVO!!! Take a bow. And thanks for the memories.

Went back to look some more. I have the green and blue bowls still that were my mom's. The round top fridge too is familiar. Still Wowing.
