Little Baby Moses

I illustrated this for the sunbeams(4 year olds) in my class for Sunday. They really enjoyed it. They had me read the poem that went with it at least four times. It was nice to have them appreciate my image so readily.

Argyle Shirt

This was a fun even if a bit quiet. I did a pen drawing, then I put some vellum over it and painted on it. The vellum really changes how acrylic acts. I've continued to use it, like for my "lil joe" jumping over the rock. Vellum can be treated like tracing paper without all the buckling, so I've enjoyed using it on little projects to see color.

This is my griffen. Usually a griffen has a bird head and a lion body, well thats been done. So I combined a lion with a peacock. This is from my sketch book, but I thought it was a good start. I have some other combination ideas: cheetah/flamingo and goose/tiger. I've already sketched them out, but their not refined just yet.


I feel like mermaids tend to be over done. Don't get me wrong... I enjoy drawing a mermaid every now and agian, but I felt like a crabmaid would be interesting. I had a good time researching different kinds of crabs and crustaceans. I did this in ballpoint pen, much to the chagrin of my illustration teacher. I think I'd like to paint it or maybe do a inkwell version with a nifty background.

About Me

My photo
I am an illustrator, bookbinder, painter, doodler, list-maker, and wife. I love food. I am what can be categorized as a dabbler. I love trying new things, but I always come back around to art and illustration. I just can't help it.
