I am super excited to announce that I am now a published illustrator! My first book is out now. I did the illustrations…I didn’t write it. This is somewhat of a dream come true. Fours years ago when I went back to school…I had the idea that I wanted to illustrate books…children’s books. Not long after graduating I was lucky enough to have to have the opportunity to work with the lovely people over at Chouette Publishing. I did two books for them the first of which is out now. It’s a search and find board book for kids.
Check it out!
Continuing my exploration of Adobe Illustrator. A little something out of the norm for me, had a lot of fun working on this one.
Some whacky friends for a whacky friday!
A quick one before getting to work…
Feels like I haven’t posted in ages! Probably because I haven’t. I finally decided I need a little me time this evening. I’ve been so busy with work and contracts, not to mention fabricating a new human life. I really shouldn’t have taken the time off this evening, but I was feeling creatively drained and how I get over that is by doing some personal work. So tonight I thought I’d play around with sketchbook pro’s radial symmetry tool and come up with some mandalas. It’s actually quite relaxing making these. Anyways, I hope my next post won’t be to far down the road, but for now have a gander at these.
Oh and if you like ’em…I will have them up on my Etsy page as colouring pages. Should you decide to purchase the pages I would really enjoy seeing the coloured results so don’t forget to take a pic and send it to me.
This is in keeping with yesterdays sketches as well as working out some new characters…possibly for a future project.
Here are a couple other illustrations I did today while taking breaks from real work. And by real work I mean illustrations I’m being paid for. Still having a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that I will be getting paid for what I love doing. Whodathunkit!
