Well, it's Spring! Now that the flooding and storming has died down, I am able to get outside and work on our garden. The kids have been loving it and I have too. If not for the mosquitoes I would probably want to move my desk out there and work.
While Spring is out my window, Fall is on my mind. I have decided that the season/colors of my children's book that I am working on will be Fall. These little woodland creatures that make up my characters will be cozying up to a warm fire in the fireplace, leaves will be falling and scarves and boots will be worn. I plan on being done with it by fall too! Above is one of the many many character sketches I have been working on over the past few weeks. The class with SVS is really helping me tons! I'm so excited about it!
Below are two sketches that are going to be incorporated in my contest entry for the SVS Third Thursday contest which is back! I loved participating in these and then they went away for quite a while and now they are back. I hope to get a critique of my work by Will and Jake. I have improved a ton since the last contest! I hope to show that in my work.
Thanks for reading! Gotta get back to the garden and the drawing table!
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.
