Work in progress

Well, after several months of re-working my portfolio, the SCBWI Summer Conference is almost here. While I'm really glad that I'm almost done putting my new portfolio together, I feel a wee bit dis-heartened. My illustrations never turn out to be as magical as they are in my head and it seems that my particular unique style is right at the tip of my brain, the tips of my fingers, but I haven't quite discovered it. I suppose the only way to find it is to keep on drawing... and so I will. Any thoughts on style, fellow bloggers? How did you find yours?

Monster Thursday

This is Blinky. Blinky likes cheese, kittens, and flying. He doesn't like sandwiches or squirrels.

Tea and Crumpets and World Domination

This one is for Allison, whose comment on one of my previous large haired ladies inspired the idea for this one. I think you might have to click on the image and view it a bit larger to appreciate it fully. I hope you like it Allison! :)

Added Tuesday, July 6 (I just realized that even when you click on this image to view it larger, its really hard to read the title on the book... I think maybe I'll do a re-do of this one soon...)
