Inktober, Exhibitions, and Other Goings On

Hey! It's high time I update you guys on a few things. A lot has been happening at once. First off, I'd like to point out the nifty new Subscribe button, stage right (or below, if you're mobile). After lots of tweaking, the newsletter is ready to go. Subscribe if you'd like to get updates from my blog in your inbox.

Inktober

The current plan is to work on one piece every week, for a total of four finished pieces. The theme I've set for myself is Witches, and it will be influenced by the four witches from The Wizard of Oz  with a twist! Stay tuned for that. And make sure to follow me on Instagram where I'll be posting updates.

Exhibitions

There are two exhibitions to note at the Philadelphia Sketch Club: The 2017 Annual Members' Exhibition going on now, which I am in (yay!), and Phillustration 9, which will be shown in November. Illustrators from the tristate area and beyond are encouraged to enter Phillustration, and you bet I'm going to submit something! I've gotten in for the previous two years, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed this time. You can learn more about Phillustration 9 by seeing the call for entries at sketchclub.org.

Meg and the Golden Fish

The spreads have been drawn out and the dummy has been finished! I can now send it out to children's book publishers for consideration. I'll be working on other book ideas in the mean time. The list of story possibilities is always growing.

Thanks for reading!

This illustration is special because it's a redo of something I've done in the past.

Process: Demons

So at the moment, I'm kind of obsessed with claws. I keep drawing hands with claws in my sketchbook. I also appreciate sharp scary teeth. I've done lots of different creatures while freelancing, and they have informed my personal work in ways that I never anticipated.
