Coming in April 2018 a new book series with American Girl and Scholastic. Four friends get together and raise money for an animal shelter in this first book. Lot's of adventures involving friendships and animals keep these girls on their toes!
I have been sketching a few dogs lately. The drawings on top were sent in for a book cover I recently completed (top secret!). Below them are my own canine cuties, a Boston and a Shih tzu.
Working on a few super cute line drawings....hmmm coloring book?
What can I say? I love making little gifs out of my art!
Coming to stores in November...A collection of all 10 Sparkle Spa books in one boxed set! I loved seeing all the books together. I had the privilege of illustrating all the covers for this cute series. Sparkle on!
Cutest lil monsters ever! I had fun making this little GIF. Now if I can figure out how to put music with it.
Just finished a couple of new images for Build & Imagine. These confident girls will be used on packaging for the Career doll set sold in Target stores.
I recently worked on a book with Beyond Words Publishing that helps kids make and keep friends. It is done in a frame by frame cartoon line drawing style. It was very important to capture the emotions of the characters as they are learning to deal with different challenges of friendships. Here is a preview spread. The book comes out this summer.
I thought I would share my process for creating a cute fairy and her little fairy friend.
First sketches based on the creative direction I received.
Revised sketch compilation of different elements.
And then a few color comps to choose from.
And ta da! The final art.... Looking pretty with her shimmery golden wings.
How cute is this poster with my character in her dance poses? This was created for the "Twirl" dance program for little girls.
