Illustration: Meet Betty-Jo

copyright Rachelle Baum

Betty-Jo is someone I dreamt up back in 2005. Since then, she has been barely more than a figment of my imagination.
Until today that is ...I finally finished my first drawing of the world according to Betty-Jo.


  1. Hi Auntie Rachelle!

    that is soooo cool!

    it reminds me of a character i played
    Mary Sue Betty Bob!!!
    i love it!!!
    Is she friends with Emily????

    Auntie Brenda LOVES babies!hey?
    she looks happy!

    Love you

  2. Thanks! What play is Mary Sue Betty Bob from?

    YES, I think Auntie Brenda does LOVE babies! Isn't that a great picture of her?

    Love you too!
    Auntie Shell

  3. p.s. I forgot to tell you. Yes, Betty-Jo is friends with Emily and Maddison!!

    :0 )

  4. Rachelle - I just LOVE her, you flatter me way too much!! I think that she may have some wild adventures ahead of her and I will be staying tuned ... great job!

    You are right ladies - I love babies too!

  5. Thanks Auntie Brenda ... and NEVER! You are my Hero :0 )

    Just think of yourself as my muse as far as Betty-Jo is concerned.

    Maybe she'll have to have an adventure with a baby or two ... a grandchild perhaps!!

  6. it's great to draw from a what the dreams inspire you:)
    she looks like a lively creature:)

    you're very good at illustrations indeed, but I still prefer your painting more imaginative and whimsy:)

    did you made her via computer drawing thing?
    I sometimes would like to learn to draw online ( buy the graphic table)I would also love to be able to do digital collages,there would be soo many possibilities oh my!!
    I always feel frustrated by my limits!
    you have this luck: you definetly can draw!

    Blessed be!

  7. She very lively! Thanks for your comments about my work. The painting are definitley more feeing. You may like my new painting "Renewal".

    Betty Jo is mostly done in Photoshop. She started out as a line drawing on paper then digitally colored in Photoshop.
