So, here it is. Finally, a post from me on my blog!!!
I figured I'd share a few of the pages from the first book in a series I'm illustrating, "Newfoundland & Labrador Lullaby". Hot off the presses and ready to promote! It's a charming lullaby composed by Mary Jane Riemann and produced as a book by Lynn McCarron. Check out the Facebook page and give it a "Like" if you don't mind :o). There is a fun video showing the interior of the book along with the beautiful lullaby NewfoundlandAndLabradorLullaby
Thanks for stopping by!

I'm trying to add some new work to my portfolio, focusing more on variety in my character shapes and showing different emotions. I also want to work more on my story telling. This was just an idea I had and went with. Let me know what you think.

Sooooo, here is what I HAD been working on for about a month and a half. It isn't complete because the project is "on hold" for now :o(. If you can't tell, it's a board book about New York City! I figured I'd share some of the images that I'd completed. Hopefully next year it might get picked up again! Good news is, I am starting a couple of other projects very soon.
This was fun and quite a challenge. I hope I get to finish it some day!
I'll share my next projects when I can! Hint on one of them, it's a collection of poems and I'm doing them black and white as ink drawings! New for me, but I'm looking forward to it!

I actually did these a couple of months ago to change up the bathroom. I still can't get decent photos of them to show the details.
These were really fun and something I've wanted to do for a while. I used different scrap booking papers and cut them out to form the characters. The text is some adhesive letters I found and thought were pretty fun. The background sky and water is actually colored tissue paper. I kept the tissue paper folded to cut out the waves, like making snowflakes. Everything was adhered with a glue called Collage Pauge onto 1.5 inch thick canvases.
I liked how they turned out! I especially love when my son looks at them with a huge, happy smile on his face and laughs.
Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think.

Like I will mention there, I haven't been drawing as many animals lately and I really want to get back to it. I LOVE drawing animals and especially animal characters. Kids and people are fun, but how fun is it to get to make an animal convey a personality that makes you think they're almost human?! That there's definitely a spark and thought process there?
If you've seen Disney's "Dumbo" than I think you can see my inspiration. One of the sweetest scenes in the movie. Man, those animators knew their stuff!
Anywhoo, I hope you like it and thanks for coming by!
