Finished the lineart part!

Finished the lineart part!

So, I’m getting ready to register for my first Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Winter Conference in NYC, and I’m super excited!! Also super nervous!!

What this means for my tumblr blog is that I have to end the Literary Challenge a little early in order to focus on getting my portfolio up to snuff (there are some things conspicuously missing that need to not be nonexistent by February). But, it also means that there will be a lot of other stuff uploaded, much more regularly. Also, there will still be book illustrations, so it’s not that different, I guess.

!!!!!
Guys, I’m so excited!!!!

Something I’m working on.

And it’s finally done! I’ll probably go back and neaten up some stuff later, but for now I really need to move on.

Country Mouse drawing, with some receipt-back sketches (it gets slow at my parttime job sometimes - my studio is now filled with sketches drawn on the back of receipts). Finished version of the Country Mouse illustration coming soon, but process has been slowed by actual paying projects ;)
