Yay!!  I finished six sketches for the Illustrating Characters Bootcamp which takes place in NYC in mid July. Here are four of them and the other two I will post once I scan them:

Why is it that on the most beautiful days of the year I am up in my studio working? And why is that when there is next to no humidity and no need for an air conditioner I work more quickly and effectively. I just knocked out three sketches and character studies. And am pleased.
And because I am on a tight deadline that suits me just fine. Now I've got the modern witch to create and a few more sketches of the children. Happy... but wish I were outside.

Got my assignment last night for my next illustrator day project. Looks super fun and challenging. The cool thing is that I am picking Hansel and Gretel characters to reinvent. What is really funny tho, is that yesterday I listened to the opera on the radio and got all sentimental. Having lived in Munich as a child this story was a staple in my library.

I actually had the record album as a very young child and the cover terrified me... but the music enthralled me. The story actually terrified me until I became 6/7.

Then I accompanied my family for a day in Central Park (my young stomping ground) and the Upper West Side humming Humperdinck all the way.

Anyhoo... back to character creation...sketching, sketching, sketching.  Perhaps I'll lighten the story up a bit.  And make it funny? Watch out witch!!!

Back to the Blog

It is June. It is almost summer and life has calmed down. My goodness I've neglected this blog too long.

Looking forward to more news to share. More artwork to display. More stories to tell. More Conference and Illustrator Day news to share. And hopefully some good news around the corner.
