I’ve had four commissions this month! Yippee!
However not all of them were children’s book related, actually most of them were NOT so I won’t post them on here. I will however post the ones that I do think might relate to children’s books.
This one unfortunately didn’t work out, but I did like working on the image.
This is a WIP and wasn’t intended for a PB, however it looks very middle grade I believe. Who knows! I could illustrate a middle grade one day.
Last month AND this month were both pretty busy! I should start writing reviews again, I did read just about fifty picture books last month haha. Plenty to write about!
This weeks line project for THINGS IN THERE.
In the middle of reading mentor picture books and writing manuscripts, I come to appreciate mini critique group projects like the one below.
This comic is a little looser, but I enjoy working this way.
*sigh* I hope this isn’t another style change .-.
Does anyone ever have that problem where you have a lot of ideas but don’t know which ones are good or worthwhile?
I’ve been having that problem for about five months now…and it’s really slowed down my work! What to do?
So I wrote the ideas down on little pieces of paper, threw em in a hat, and picked. Yup, let fate decide!
Fate decided that The Hungry Witch Mabel was the one to work on. I already had character designs, a manuscript, and colored pieces as a separate portfolio builder project…I just need the dummy.
I probably should’ve been editing this one all along.
I completed the Stitching Butterflies dummy and sent it to the LB Emerging Artist contest woot! (even though I learned that I sent in a page out of order…whoops…well at least I completed the dummy lol, NEVER SEND IN THINGS LAST MINUTE Y’ALL)
So what’s next?
Well I completed these for my portfolio inspired by one of my manuscripts, The Hungry Witch Mabel.
Am I finally finished with this piece?
Probably not, but I can always go back. For now I call it finished.
