Illustration Friday: Winter!

Br-r-r-r it's cold and blustery outside. Even the snowman is wearing a hat and scarf. Here's my entry for this weeks Illustration Friday prompt - Winter. Please visit my website.

I'm staying indoors away from all this wintry weather, making a list of things I want to try or do in 2011. One thing on the list is to post weekly if not more frequently on this blog. Another is to create more.

Here's my illustration for this week's IF prompt: MAIL.

It's a busy day at the Greenhaven Post office. The clerks are doing their best but despite there best efforts there's quite a line forming. Can you spot my alter ego with an arm load of proposals and art samples to mail off to the publishers? 

Speaking of Mail, I better get cracking on my Christmas Cards or they'll be late! 

Seasons Greetings to All!

YAY - I completed PiBoIdMo!

Yay I'm a PiBoIdMo 2010 winner and I can proudly display my badge for all to see. I came up with 31 Picture book ideas in November. The last one came to me right before the stroke of midnight on November 30th - but it's still right in there. Now I have to admit it was a bit of touch and go where I wasn't sure if I'd hang in as November was an extremely hectic month for me. Which is why I'm so happy to announce that I tried it and completed the challenge!

Interestingly some of my picture book ideas are things I'd want to research and write about but may not want to illustrate myself and there are of course a few that are based on characters I've doodled or are spin offs of my latest PB dummy and manuscript. I'm also happy that I jotted them down on index cards as now I can sort them by type: fiction, concept, non-fiction and further categorize them by whether I want to illustrate them or just write the manuscript. Hopefully all of this sorting will help me decide which will be my next project.
