Here is my little fun submission for Illustration Friday this week. The theme word was “kiss”. I’ve been a bit stuck on unicorns for, oh, about…32 years. However, I’ve only just started drawing them again. I hope this gives you a little smile on a Thursday afternoon.
I’ve been working on promos this week, and trying to get better about doing quarterly mailings. Here are the postcards to be sent (once they arrive from moo.com).
A little explanation, if you like: I illustrated my daughter, who really loves to twirl in the living room when music is playing.
I’ve been so busy lately that I have neglected this poor little blog. The biggest news I have at the moment is that I am now represented by the wonderful Teresa Kietlinski of Bookmark Literary. This is a really big step into the world of children’s publishing and I couldn’t be more excited!
Upon reflection and useful critiquing, I’ve revisited some projects in my online portfolio. One was a piece I did as an Illustration Friday submission, for the prompt word “Vacation.” Bear was just too relaxed for a realistic vacation, I’m afraid.
I consistently have fun creating these stories, and experimenting with both traditional and digital media. May my learning never stop and my curiosity never satiated. I hope the same for you, my creative friends!
Every month, the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators issues a prompt word for their online illustrator gallery. The word for September is “Muse”. My dogs have always been a great inspiration for me, so here we are. Who (or what) is your muse?
Last week’s prompt word on Illustration Friday was “Grow”, so naturally, I grew a Sasquatch. Kind of a no-brainer, really. As anyone who grew up in the 1980s knows, Sasquatches are gentle vegetarians. (Thank you, Harry and the Hendersons.)
