Tucson Festival of Books…

This weekend our little town hosted the Tucson Festival of Books. I volunteered for duty on Saturday and helped direct traffic to different venues on the U of A campus. As a book illustrator I felt this was a great learning experience for me. There were a number of different book publishers booths available for questioning and of course I offered my business card.

Overall I'm glad that I was part of this great event. As a volunteer I heard nothing but positive reviews about the authors, the event itself and also the way it was coordinated.

Monday Artday…

This week’s challenge is Mad Tea Party, otherwise known as the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. I decided to put a spin on this and do it as characters from The Wizard of Oz.

What’s New This Week…

I’m almost finished with the illustrations for my most current children’s book.* I was pretty pleased with the way this page turned out and am especially fond of the filtered light in the shop. Hope you all like it!

*I should note, I’m illustrating the book but did not author it.

Original done in pencil on paper, scanned then drawn in Adobe Illustrator.
