Illustration Friday: Toy

This week's Illustration Friday word is "toy", and while I suppose shells and snails aren't exactly toys, arranging, labeling, and drawing my extensive seashell collection occupied many, many hours growing up!

New Storybird Shop!

When little people look over my shoulder while I'm drawing they almost always ask, "Who's that? What are they doing?" There must be a story behind the picture!

Sometimes there will be a story, and sometimes I just say, "What do YOU think is happening?"

Storybird is a website that lets you answer that question for yourself! On Storybird you can write your own story, poem, or picture book, choose illustrations to accompany your words, and even buy a downloadable or printed copy of your book. I am excited to join the inspiring artists at Storybird and very pleased to introduce you to my Storybird shop!

So, what do YOU think is happening?

Inktober Summary

This was my second year to attempt inktober--a pen and ink sketch a day throughout October. As you can see, I did pretty well . . . for the first week! Then traveling caught up with me and inktober feel by the wayside.

A someday-story...

... plotted by my sister and me, though so far it hasn't come to much more than a bit of artwork and a few scribbles.

Waiting for a letter

Finally posting a picture of this painting I did for a friend's Christmas present!
