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.

That's adorable. See, this is the kind of thing that frightens me about doing children's books...the thought of trains, buildings, machines...agh. All the things I really do not like to draw. But you've managed to make this all very engaging and full of personality. Very nice.

Thanks Sunrise.

I've definitely been working on getting more engaging faces and poses—really centering you in on the main character.

It's really not much different than drawing people either. That's a big reason I love being able to do figure drawing out here.

Kerrie, I love these latest illustrations you've done! Very nice. The colors are very inviting and the images are so warm and friendly. It seems you get better and better every time I look in on your blog. This look is especially nice and you can tell you're having fun. Awesome work! can't wait to see what's next!!
