My First Website
I don't remember how long ago this was - probably over ten years, but at one point I wanted to be a greeting card illustrator. I had read Mary Engelbreit's book and was filled with inspiration. So soon after, I put up my website (as unprofessional looking as one can possibly get lol). You can definitely see the heavy Mary Engelbreit influence here, but I sure did learn a good deal about design and composition. Beforehand, I knew nothing of those all important aspects of drawing. These were done in marker (which I developed an allergy to--smelly smelly smelly) and colored pencil.
I fell even more deeply in love with children's books before any of these were every published.
