This year I participated in Inktober. I decided to illustrate iconic kids and teens for the word prompts. Here are my favorites from the month.
(Character and “word prompt” starting clockwise) Dora from Dora the Explorer “chicken”, Mowgli from The Jungle Book “prickly”, Hermione from Harry Potter “spell”, Wednesday from The Addams Family “cruel”, Mei and Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro “exhausted”, Lara Jean from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before “drooling”, Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite “drain… the swamp”, Annie from Annie “expensive”, Charlie from Firestarter “roasted”.
Taking a moment this morning to color in the new coloring book Drawn to Color that I'm featured in along with lots of other wonderful Pacific Northwest children's book illustrators. It's available for sale on August 22nd. And if you're in the Seattle area, come join me and some of the other illustrators for a coloring day at the University Bookstore U District store on Saturday, August 26th at 11am!
This is my tide pools spread. I love all of the fun, weird creatures in tide pools so this was a ton of fun to illustrate!
I'm back after an inspiring trip to Alaska. More on that later!
For today I wanted to mention that the wonderfully talented surface pattern designer Bonnie Christine announced a fun giveaway for Charley and the Yellowstone Sprites. Enter to win a signed copy of the book plus some other goodies!
And thank you Bonnie @goinghometoroost for the lovely review!
