Illustration Friday - Brigade

Ink & Watercolor

Here's my entry for Illustration Friday - A whole BRIGADE of Snowmen to usher in the winter holiday season. I was working on my motley crew of snowmen sketches when IF posted the word of the week and I thought they fit the prompt.

I created these snowmen for my POD stores*. The arts done -now just need to sneak in the time between assignments to make the illos into  "products". I know I'm a wee behind, at any rate the snowmen will be arriving into my various stores and depending on how you look at it they're either too late for this winter season or too early for next year's. In the meanwhile I hope you liked the preview.

Snowmen will be arriving soon at my *stores: 

Note to self: 2012 resolution #1 - create seasonal art 3-6 months ahead of the season for my POD shops. Give them time to build some SEO and all that other good stuff.

YAY -I Completed PiBoIdMo 2011!

I do solemnly swear that I have faithfully executed 
the PiBoIdMo 30-ideas-in-30-days challenge,
and will, to the best of my ability,
parlay my ideas into picture book manuscripts.

WHEW! - so glad I completed the challenge, although with a dry patch in the middle I almost gave up. All in all even with a bit of creative block it was a lot of fun: reading the daily inspiring posts on Tara's blog, hoping to win a prize here or there. Most of all just having fun and knowing that I'm not the only one muttering PB ideas to myself for the month of November.

Now the work ahead and into 2012 is to flesh out at least 1 of these scribbled ideas into a real PB story - a PB dummy even!
