It's been a super busy week. I have been overwhelmed by the amount I am learning about Illustration from Jake and Will. I am also super excited about some new stuff happening with my favorite podcasters Chris Oatley and Lora Innes. It's looking like I may be able to do some coursework through the Oatley Academy in the future which would be SO FANTASTIC!
As for artwork, I have been squeezing in work on the class and on my book this week. I have a better understanding of how much prep work I need to be doing on the characters and background and I am so ready to get that work done! I also just learned that the SVS will begin doing the Third Thursdays Contests again. I love those! I can't wait to turn in my first entry, I have improved so much since last summer!
So I do have some sketches to share and then I have to get back to work... here are some sketches of a Froggie I am preparing for my Children's book that I aim to finish with this summer. I began work on it at the end of last summer and I have put lots of time and effort into it, with lots more to come! After the froggies, you will see some ideas for little woodland houses I'm toying with for the book too... I just came up with them today, so they are rough ideas. (Second house sketch to be added later, Couldn't fit it all into one scan... To be added later)
Thanks for reading! More art soon...
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.
