I was invited to Elim Children’s Center to give a little talk about being an artist. We talked about how artists never stop using their imagination, that drawing requires practice, and that when you combine observational drawing with imagination – you get style. They learned how to draw a stylized sleepy cat, a dog, and a pigeon over watercolor. The results were fantastic! I wish you could see each up close, because each drawing has it’s own personality!
It’s been a while since I’ve been in school, but today I got to join in on class with my charming nephew Will for story-time! These kids got a sneak peak of the picture book I’ve been working on and the whole class was a great test audience! They had some good questions and I really enjoyed being able to show them my process video so that they could get a better understanding of how I used both my hands and my mouse when I made the illustrations for this book.
