There are many illustrations that I have done for kid’s books, magazine articles, classroom posters, advertising jobs over the years. Generally speaking I use pen & inks, watercolors & colored pencils…and clean everything up in Photoshop.
I love line, and I love how watercolors react when they touch paper. Line is very definite and watercolors seem to have minds of their own with very serendipitous outcomes. I enjoy utilizing both.
I bask in the freedoms that drawing & painting allow when the intentions are distinctly non-realistic, and possibly even whimsical. I enjoy letting the paper dictate to some extent; it nearly always culminates in colorful, vividness and quirkiness.
Welcome to my CHILDREN’S BOOK ILLUSTRATION portfolio page.
I am re-setting this page, so please forgive the mess. I will have smaller thumbprints to pick from and a detail of each sample with a description of how I work to show you when it’s all set up.
