unusual holidays featuring a penguin, puppy, birds, and a bear - plus art for ABFE auction

In my last post, I made art to celebrate Pig In A Blanket Day, and Arbor Day.


Since then, I've found there are lots of daily celebrations I've never heard of before. I decided to make art to celebrate those holidays too!

Saturday was World Penguin Day, and National Telephone Day. It seemed like a good opportunity for a penguin to catch up with all her friends and family on the phone:


Sunday was National Pretzel Day, and National Kids And Pets Day. This puppy is happy that his girl shared her pretzel with him!


Monday was Tell A Story Day. These little birdies are telling a story, and reading a story (EWE AND AYE). This painting is also going to be at the ABFE auction at BEA* (note: the colors look better in real life than in the scan).


Today is National Blueberry Pie Day! This little bear has a powerful nose that can smell blueberry pie from miles away:


Tomorrow is bound to have another celebration I can illustrate too! (And the next day, and the next day, and the day after that ...)

* I have a second painting for the ABFE auction at BEA. This year they're honoring Judy Blume. I had several ideas about what to draw before deciding to paint a girl reading a Judy Blume book (ARE YOU THERE GOD? IT'S ME, MARGARET), with a stack of her books to choose from when she's looking for another book to read.
