Alley & WIP

It's been awhile since I last posted a commission. I've been really busy with finals but now freedom! This fluffy kitty is named Alley. She is the kitty sister of Jake. They even get along in real life which is the cutest.

Medium: Pastel pencils on sanded pastel paper
Size: 8x10

I am so excited to be going to New Jersey Annual Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators conference in June! As I hope to one day illustrate my own children's books I eager to see what I can learn from the conference. I have also signed up for a portfolio critique. And, I have entered the juried art show. I decided to try and compose an illustration using scratchboard.

It's hard to completely understand what is doing on since it is not complete. But the illustration is supposed to be a person aka me, in the forest releasing Kodi's ashes...which transform into an image of Kodi. Pretty pleased with it so far. More to come soon as I need to finish it by June 2nd.
