Meet "Mama Monkey"

I thought I'd show a sneak peek of one of the characters in the picturebook dummy I'm working on. This is a sketch from my dummy which has been in the works for soooooo long. It has been a pure labor of love with lots of revisions to the manuscript AND the illustrations, but it's finally coming together. I finally can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
And, here's the finished painting. I changed a few things.. but I like how it turned out.

A Workshop in the Fish Bowl

I started a workshop with Marisa at Creative Thursday almost 2 weeks ago and I'm a little late in getting my blog updated about it. The e-course has started off great with terrific podcasts and videos from Marisa and she is an AMAZING and INSPIRING teacher.It's been inspiring and motivating to hear what other artists have to share, also. So many of the artists are much further along on their path which is fun and exciting to see what they are doing and hear what's working for them.
