Introducing Mo and her Digital Pencil

OK, so if you know me...Really know me then you know what my top loves are:

1. The King of my Life, Jesus Christ

2. My Whole family - My wonderful husband, my kids, my Mommy and Daddy, Sisters and Brother, Nieces and Nephews...Everyone

3. Art- Stamps, coloring, drawing, painting & papercrafting

4. Children's Books and Illustrations- I collect them!! Yes, I buy books for the illustrations!! One of my dreams is to write and illustrate my own children's book one day.

5. Elvis Presley - I have In the Ghetto as my ringtone. So, if you ever call and I don't answer, it's because I am listening to the Ghetto!!

6. Lucille Ball - Yes... I Love LUCY!!


Well, I am so excited about my latest find in the arty blog world. She is 2 of my favorite things rolled into one!! I am over-the- moon about the sweet lady and her drawings. I could honestly look at them all day long!!! Her drawings are so my kind of art!!! Now with out further adieu, I am excited to introduce to you ...... Maurie J. Manning aka Mo!!

I don't blame you for loving her stuff Lori. I discovered her on PCP a while ago. Her stuff is brilliant!

Hi Lori, drawing is my great passion too and I adore childrens picture books, I have a selection of books from my favourite illustrators e.g., Oliver Jeffers (that no child is going to get its hands on!)
I got into bloging via my interest in drawing a couple of years ago through this site Illustration Friday. They run a weekly challenges to draw in line with a theme - it is a great thing to participate in and open to all abilities, I've met some amazing artists throught it. :)
