This blog is a journal of my continuing journey to become a better artist while keeping the fun in art making. I've posted class assignments, personal, and professional work. In every piece of art I make, no matter whether the goal is academic, personal, or monetary, this blog is a reminder to myself to make sure I always enjoy the process. After all, why should any of us bother pursuing such a hard field to get into as art, if we're not having fun with it!

Little Women Jo on fire!
I've been a member of the SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators) for a few months now, and they have some great awards and scholarships to apply for. I recently applied for their mentor-ship program and today I turned in a submission for the Tomie dePaola Award. The winter will get to attend the Winter Conference in New York for free. With 300 entries last year, I'd be very surprised to win, but no matter the outcome I had so much fun with this challenge. For this piece I had a choice between 3 novels to pick an excerpt from to illustrate in black and white. I picked "Little Women."
