Fresh from the Sketchbook!

Napping on a Sunday afternoon.

Lately, I've really enjoyed doing shadow sketches. The dramatic shapes are fun to draw.

Hooray for drawing kids! + a potential book cover for a story about a baby who is born singing.

More babies! And pretty ladies.

WIFYR Conference 2012

It's been a few weeks now, but the conference was fantastic! Here's the overview:

There was a contest to write about a famous character in a famous setting/story that was not their own. In the illustration class, we drew our responses. 

My watercoloring improved 100% in the three days of workshop with Julie. This was a second rendition of a painting that I did in London last year. Unlike its predecessor, I'm very pleased with this one. 

Julie Olson during the watercolor demo: 

Oh, and if you're ever in Sandy - we ate at the best Mexican restaurant I have EVER been to. It's called  La Costa. This picture was taken on our last day.
