I haven't posted in a while. As the saying goes, 'life is what happens when you're busy making plans,' and I had big plans for April. I've moved forward by inches rather than making great strides but at least I've moved forward. This piece is something I did at the beginning of April. It's a more finished idea of the first page spread for my story "The First Pearl." Below is the first rough sketch in acrylics that I did for the dummy book.
I've been taking my first online class - a webinar on pacing picture books and its been very motivational. I'm now trying to focus more exclusively on my stories, so the illustrations that I post will more directly relate to my stories and their development.
This guy is Quin. He is a clay model I made for one of the characters in "The First Pearl."
