APRIL in August
I'm entering this in a calendar contest for the SCBWI conference in September. Any member can illustrate one month and if they win it will appear in a printed calendar for the Northern Ohio Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. Fingers are crossed.
It is done almost entirely digitally except for the preliminary sketch which I dropped into Corel Painter. I can't imagine giving up the good ole pencil for sketching out ideas. Originally the background was a house but I didn't think it had the visual impact that this background has. That's what I love about working digitally. You can change your mind in a very big way without starting completely over.
