Illustrator Of The Week
Wow, what a lovely surprise in my inbox this morning! I can't tell you how thrilled I am that the Childrens Illustrators team picked me to be the featured Illustrator of The Week. This is such an honor, thank you all so much.
The piece shown on the home page (pictured above) is named CLAWD. He came out of another piece I created in one of my sketchbooks (where I worked in just three colors) for International Tiger Day (ITD). Clawd is an original painting (12" x 12" gouache on Arches Hot Press 300lb paper) that was later donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Auction organized by the amazing author Kate Messner.
Below shows the color pallette inspiration and progression of the painting including the sketchbook piece I created for ITD.
