The Goats of Carding, Vermont

Over the last few years I’ve had the pleasure of reading all three of the Carding Novels by a local author, and my friend, Sonja Hakala.

The Road UnsaltedThieves of Fire and her most recent, The Dazzling Uncertainty of Life have been a pleasure to read.  I love that I can recognize some of the locations and was thrilled when Sonja asked me to contribute one of my sketches to help illustrate one of the short stories that make up the Carding Chronicles featured on her blog.

Thank you Sonja, it’s been an honor!

I did this goat sketch in 2013 and thought I’d easily be able to link to other sketches done the same day, that was before I realized they pre-date this blog by a few months! By the way, ESE stands for Eastern States Exposition, also known as The Big E!

As you can see, I love the fair. There’s so much to see and draw that I have to make sure I have plenty of pages left in my journal before I leave home.

Hmmmmmmm….. Some of these people look like they could be Carding folk. I guess you’d have to read to find out for yourself!
