Developing Wings

It is fun to play around with the Wacom, as well as illustrate quotes by favorite authors. I am rather happy with the way this turned out, and feel it may be the start of something new in my artistic journey.

Children’s Book repped

Business of Art, Le Grand Portefeuille

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!

Revisiting the Vacationing Bear

Illustrating Books

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!

Holiday Greeting




It is so fun when I get to use illustration in my day job.  Maybe one day this will be my job.  At the moment, I am grateful that I have a little time to do this, and a workplace that appreciates creativity.

I scanned a drawing in and used some new gouache brushes from Kyle T. Webster.  His brushes are the best for digital painting.

Happy Holidays to all!

So cool to send art across the globe!
