I did this one late last night trying to get it done for WW, but I was very tired, and lazy, and it shows in this illo. I'm still posting it anyway, so you get an idea of what I'm working on. I'll try to redo it later, and hopefully it'll look better.

I'm working on an illo for WW with the prompt of girly. I'm posting the inked version. I did apply color, but messed it up, so I'll need to redo the illo again, and hopefully have better luck with the color. I'll post the finished piece later.

Keith Keeler was legendary at Jefferson Elementary for tormenting all the other kids, whether it was by stealing their lunch money, stuffing them in lockers, or for inflicting the super wedgie. His victims waited patiently for the day when justice would be served....

My daughter is going to her best friend's party, and this is a little card I made for her. The girls had a playdate not long ago where they made a "cootie catcher." I remember making them when I was in school too. Brings back some good memories! So, I couldn't resist adding a little cootie catcher to this illustration.

The prompt for IF is intricate and on WW this week it's play, so I've tried to kill two birds with one stone. We often encounter this scenario in our house, usually with legos. One daughter meticulously finishes up her intricate tower, only to have the dog, or her sister come pouncing on in, and ... Ka-Blam!

It feels like I've been away from this blog forever. We've had a very busy February, with sickness (my eldest daughter had pneumonia), with vacation (we were out in Colorado), and finally, I've had a chance to sit down and get some work done.
I finished up my poster for the NESCBWI Conference in April -- I can't believe how fast April is creeping up! And I finished the illustrations for the April issue of Stories for Children. I got to work on a really sweet story called The Magical Easter Egg by Billy Burgess. So without further ado, here are those illustrations.... Next, on the to-do-list, get some illustrations done for WW, and for IF.... tonight, after the kids are in bed.
