In Illustration News

On Saturday, the 10th I went to the SCBWI Fall Philly 2009 conference. It was very insightful. I showed my work to two artist representatives, who gave me some good advice. My next step is to start submitting to publishing houses and children’s magazines.

Five Animals, Giving Gifts

A few new illustrations.
These were all painted on watercolor paper, but I printed them on off-white card stock. These make up a greeting card series I’ve been working on, the theme is “Giving Gifts”. I love sitting down to paint a little character now and then. I choose to do a large turtle, boar, mule, lama and kangaroo. I didn’t make the kangaroo carrying flowers in a kangaroo tummy pouch . That wouldn’t go with the series, also it would not be fair to the other animals. !
