What the heck am I going to post next October if I post all Halloween related material this year? But if you got it, post it right? Unlike the craftsy pumpkins of last week, I'm friends with these two all year. They hang in my stairway along side Neon Giraffe, Pink Kitty and Big Eyed Dog. All five beloved characters can now be found on another website. http://www.childrensillustrators.com/ to see my work there hit portfolio directory, then W, then hit my giraffe icon. I was also profiled last week on another blog. http://www.readingminnesota.blogspot.com/ Thankyou very much to Beth Solheim for that honor. And I popped over to the studio of my mentor Carrie Hartman http://www.carriehartman.blogspot.com/ for my first lesson. She is a master at the art of the critique. I learned alot about the use of color. Like how I need to mellow out my background colors so that... well...my forground really pops!
