And that warm fall light. This recent cover finish reminds me of my favorite time of day, late afternoons.

One of the best challenges with each project is the exhaustive sketch process when beginning a project. It's so necessary to try and solve each assignment in as many ways possible, and then narrowing it down which one "feels" closest to home. These are practical lessons for art students. When I was in school, my first illustration assignment was to draw 100 sketches for an apple. You get really creative by number twenty. Professionally, what comes after is accepting which one the publishers chooses. That's why I would suggest only showing your best ideas! You don't want to get stuck working the next three weeks on something your heart and mind is not connected with.
Ok, I'll stop the "tuity fruity" talk. Excited about this recent bookcover finish. Will show when published!

With the upcoming fall, I myself have fallen into deadline maddness! School has started again, and balancing projects and classes is once again all consuming. BUT! As time passes I can start to share more of the projects that are underway. For now, here are some character sketches of a gentler era. Was it really gentler though? Well, the dresses were prettier.
