Who Are They?

These are just initial character ideas - nothing final.

Part of the fun of writing a picture book is figuring out what the characters will wear and what kind of personalities they'll have. Jack is very stylish, classy, calm, collected, while Zack is wild, sloppy and constantly stressed out. The smallest character of all, the unassuming little girl has the biggest impact on the story when she whispers one sentence. Maybe one day everyone will find out what it is (if I can make the impossible possible.).

Fall Postcards!

I accidentally, somehow, posted this on the Picture Bookies showcase, sorry about that girlies! It's been deleted. Lol, I've lost all my blogging skills since it's been so long.

Nice To Be Drawing Again

Well I am finally over this flu bug. Only today did I finally get rid of the nagging cough. Here's an illustration from a recent project - basically a colored sample of the characters.

Next post I'll be discussing the Write Now competition in which some of my fellow blogging buddies won! And I managed to place as well. :0)

Trip plus flu equals massive email backlog!

Summertime, Beaches, Fireflies....FLU BUG?

This is my official "I'm sick" image. Whenever I catch something I'll post this.

I was warned about catching stuff in airplanes, and boy did we. My parents and I were totally wiped out with the flu this past week. Our house turned into a sick ward with lots of coughing, tissues,Vicks Vapor, Halls, nose strips. I'd forgotten just how miserable a cold/flu combination can be.

So once again I'm still behind on email, I have library books due as well that are very VERY late and I can't get to the library to return them. I'm honestly expecting a horror show when I go to review my late fees online.

Feeling woozy again so off to lay down. Will post more stuff soon.
