Ask Me Anything event this week--come and ask me a question!

Hello, friends! I wanted to let you know I'm hosting an Ask Me Anything (AMA) event on Thursday and Friday of this week.

If you already have some questions--about art, writing, kickstarting, or creative projects in general, you can go to the event now (or wait until it's live!) and I will do my best to answer on Thursday and Friday. :)

Hope to see you there! 

(Here's a twitter link to share the event with your friends--the more the merrier!)

A Really-Truly Princess is on Kickstarter! (& follow my Inktober sketches!)

That's right, today is the day!

Here's a link to the Kickstarter campaign for A Really-Truly Princess. I'm super excited to finally share it with you! On the campaign page you can see a couple of illustrations from each of the five stories in the book--can you tell what fairy tales they're based on?

(And, just a heads-up, there are a limited number of signed copies available at the same reward price as the regular books!)

Don't forget that you can read the first chapter for free!

And, since it is October/Inktober, I am hoping to post a new sketch every day on my Instagram feed--here is what I've posted for the first three days. I just got a brush pen, so I'll be experimenting with that and trying to get a feel for how it works. Come follow along!

A Really-Truly Princess: Book Kickstarter!

For the last several weeks my mailing list has been getting a behind-the-scenes looks at my process and progress as I work on an illustrated children's novel: A Really-Truly Princess.
There are more than 80 black and white illustrations planned for the book, and I'm on schedule to finish them in the next few weeks--I'm so excited to share the full project with you!

I'll let my mailing list know as soon as the Kickstarter is live next Tuesday--and in the meantime, you can read more about the book here, or download the first chapter for free at my Gumroad shop!

Originals for sale & FREE coloring sheets!

These original watercolor paintings are now up in the shop! There are also prints at Society6.

Two of these illustrations are available as free coloring sheets--I forgot to scan the inks of the third one before I broke out my watercolors...oops! You can download both pictures as a hi-res print-ready PDF in my Gumroad shop.

The Mermaid & the Polar Bear

This month my instagram feed was full of artists participating in MerMay, so I decided to join in! (Actually it was mostly an excuse to make myself draw polar bears.) I only finished three ink-and-watercolor pieces for this arctic fairy tale mashup--you can see larger images below--but here are super-scribbly sketches for the end of the story!
The original 5"x7" watercolor illustrations will be up in the shop soon, so check back or join the mailing list to be notified!
