It’s a pretty good day when all I did was play with textures all day!

I’m always trying to incorporate more textures for a more organic vibe to my work. This new promo piece a combination of textures and water color brushes. More of these two characters to come.

If anyone has any texture techniques they’d like to share with me, happy to hear about your process!

Oh hey 2017!

The holiday season came and went so fast this year it will probably fall into the blurry canyons of my memory. My attempts to hold on to every bit of what I know I will soon be calling “The Good Old Days” seems to be failing. Our daughter is a full pledged toddler now (so fast) and taking every minute she has during the day to discover her world. Finding a balance between being an illustrator and mommy is a constant uphill battle…but don’t worry, I got this!

I have a lot of expectations about this new year and I hope 2017 meets them all. Time will only tell where this slightly new style will take me but I sure am having fun rediscovering some old skill set and experimenting with new techniques. More things to come from me this year so stay tuned!

…but today is SNOW DAY! Have a great year everyone!!

P.S.

Don’t forget to pick up your copy of Highlights for Children Magazine. You can find this rebus I’ve illustrated for the January 2017 issue.
