Busy time of year. Working on custom artwork for others instead of illustrations this week. I am doing pencil pet portraits this year. I have discovered that I like doing them on the toned tan paper with white pastel highlights. This is working well so far. I was a bit disappointed that there aren't many sizes available for these types of sketchbooks, the largest I could find was 11 x 14. Here is an example of what I am doing.
In other news I have a contest coming up, a color challenge tomorrow and I just finished a commissioned painting for a friend that I will hopefully post soon. Thanks for reading,
Thanks for stopping by. I'm a published illustrator working on getting better every day. My goal for my work is for it to be charming, bright and endearing. I share my ongoing work progress online because I welcome all the encouragement and feedback I can get as I try to improve my skills. I currently have a children's book project that I am nearing the end of.
