Micheal this is fabulous, I love it! I love the texture on the hippo and the floor, actually I just love it all. :)Thanks so much for your visits and kind words on my blog. I really appreciate it!
Of course children should have imaginary friends! Nice job. I'd like to join the tea party.

This sweet friendship appears to be hunkered down for the long run! Love Gloria, whiskers and all! :o)

Now that is my kind of tea-party! Great work- love the hippo!
Jajaja i love it!!
Ha, ha, so fun. Love the little hipo's chair :)
Charming and cute. I like how Gloria is daintily holding that tea cup.
i smell an art jam coming on. imaginary friends anyone? inspiring piece as always michael!
At our house we have an imaginary guy called Fred who sometimes joins us for dinner, but right now he's off exploring in the jungle. I think its great for kids to use their imagination this way and hopefully they'll continue to use it as adults as well.
I had an imaginary friend called Terry. I couldn't see him and he didn't talk back, but I liked the idea of having a friend called Terry and my imagination seemed to be the best way of meeting one. Our friendship didn't last long, it was too one sided.Great art, as always.
gloria is so gentle + sweet with her little whiskers! "today's parent" magazine is lucky to have you livening things up!! great. superb. magnificent as always!
Great piece! Love all your illustrations

i would love a hippo named gloria to hang out with. and not just for tea parties! this is another fine example of your amazing talent. wonderful illustration!
That is the greatest hippo i think i have ever seen - Love the way they are holding thier tea cups!

Absolutely fantastic, Michael! I want to sit down for a spot with this lovely pair. Wow! And that hippo's little whiskers (and the tail pointing in the UP direction) just kicked it to the awesome factor for me..those little details just make your work sing. Great job!!

OOOH look you captured me in such a wonderful way!!!!! I just love Gloria cause she is me he he he he he! I love this sooooooooo gosh darn MUCH!!! YUMMMMMMM!! Oh my goodness I can't stop looking at it. I have to find the magazine so I can snatch this picture out of it. Please let me know which issue it is so I can get! I'm so serious it's sad! he he he. I love this. Thanks so much for stopping but Michael. Hope that all is well with you.Take care,V
Hah well I laughed, thankyou. Gloria! Mind you a hippo by any other name would be as heavy - but not so funny.cheers Michael!
I'd love to see the Hippo sitting in the back seat kicking the dad's seat while dad's driving...wink, wink, nudge, nudge...!Great piece!
Hey Michael, your work continues to inspire me. This is great,it's both cute and funny. I love the hippo! The textures and colors are great. As always, a wonderful piece!
That hippo character is awesome, Michael!!! I love that you added a slight pinkish texture in the hippos body. It really helps tie the colors of the Tea cups and the chairs together!
Brilliant work. I wouldn´t be surprised if the Today´s Hippo Parents magazine use your illustration for an article about the hippos´imaginary friends...
SO cute, again :)I'd say it's a beautifull thing to have enough fantasy to have imaginary friends, I had lots when I was a kid, it still is a source for creativity.Kids already are being told that facts are good and fantasy is childish, but without my imagination I would have been a very unhappy child.
Hey Michael, how are you buddy?Hehehe! Gloria is really cool, and you're right, I would absolutely want a hippo named Gloria in my living room to have tea with :DAs always this illustration is amazing and super fun! love the colours and the characters. your text made me laugh too, you are THE MAN! :DCheers
the thought , and the life you have in your art makes it memorable , love your work:)
Well speaking for me I'd love to hang out with Gloria, but my imaginary mongoose buddy Clive wouldn't like it so... Glorious work Michael, love that delicately poised tea cup... and great use of the bertoia chairs :)
Hey,love your style!!!Tnx for your coment in my blog- its honour for me :")
Despite the simplicity your designs are so emotive! I just love the little stories you put in with those beautiful compositions. Have to say, this made my day :)Cheers!
Oh, I'd LOVE to have an imaginary hippo friend named Gloria! (Of course at my age, people might mistake that for being a tad CRAZY! LOL) This is sooooo awesome :) Love it!
