LA Times

I got a call a couple months ago from the LA Times asking if I'd illustrate a story for the 'Kids' Reading Room' section of the newspaper. I took the opportunity to experiment a bit with this illo. I tried some different Photoshop brushes and attempted to give the piece more of a 'chalk pastel' feel. I like how it came out and want to keep working with some of these textures in the future. Oh, and I can't forget to shout out a BIG thank you to my good friend Marilyn Scott-Waters for referring me!

Here is a link to the Kids' Reading Room on the LA Times website.

SCBWI Kite Tales newsletter

About a month or so ago I got a Facebook message asking if I'd be willing to write a 300 word bio for the Illustrator's Gallery page of the Tri-Region SoCal SCBWI newsletter Kite Tales. I was so honored!

If you'd like to read the Newsletter (it's really informative and worth the read) click here. If you'd like to read my 'lil bio, head over to page 25.

And because I can't post without a drawing to show you, here is a sketch from a recent project. Have a great day everybody!
