New work :)



Hello peeps! I can't believe it's already mid March, time just flies by around here. I've been working on lots of promo pieces for source books. My first time ever being in any so it's exciting. I also just finished a really fun project - I got to illustrate "The Three Bears" for a children's story book :) The entire book has about 40 stories in it and half of them were illustrated by the MB Artists gang. It'll be published in April - a lot sooner than I expected so hopefully I'll be able to share my illustrations for this project next month plus pictures of my illos in the book. Woo-hoo! :)

I also just finished the above image. Does it look familiar? I took it from one of the pages in my sketchbook project and switched the kids for animals. Fun, huh?! If you scroll down a bit on my blog you'll see the sketch I'm talking about. The other half (the one on the left side) will be in a source book next year. Okay, I better get back to work now....I have a few projects staring at me that need my attention. Take care! xo :)
