Illustration Friday: Round

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I know that after spending a holiday where all you do is eat, it wasn't hard coming up with an idea for this week's topic of "Round."
 Among many things, I love food, olde tyme stuff, and old men waving their canes in anger. Enjoy!

Illustration Friday: Vanity

Hey everyone!
After a couple of weeks of Illustration Friday silence due to getting ready for the Artache Art Flea Market, I'm back in full effect. A lot of time too I at least do the drawings even without posting them, usually because they are still in sketch form. Here is a fun contribution for this week's theme, vanity.
I love the idea that this boogery little guy is vain. He's gross, but I do think he's kind of cute. I used watercolor and pencil on this. I really like my treatment of the watercolor. I've been trying to use pencil more in this way, almost like pen, but with a little enhancement of shading.
Anyways, enjoy and more to come! Thanks for viewing!

My first digital picture book!

Hey picture book enthusiasts!
I wanted to let everyone know of a website that just launched today that I am a part of called uTales.com. uTales is a brand new website where you can access digital pictures books for kids of all ages. You can purchase the books individually for download or subscribe monthly to the site to have access to all of the books on the site. All of the books contributed are written and illustrated from people all over the world too, which is really cool. The books can be read on your computer, iPad and iPhone. uTales contributes portions of each book downloaded to the charity Pencils of Promise, a wonderful organization that builds schools in developing countries.

I have one picture book currently up for download called “What Are You?”  

The book is about when two unlike things meet, one wants to know what the other is. But "what" something is doesn't necessarily tell you "who" they are.
You can find it in the Learn section.

So check it out! It supports a great cause and there are some amazing books in there!
