. . . okay, well I guess the secret's out.
A few weeks ago a friend of mine who is writing a children's book for an education class asked me to illustrate her book for me. I tend to say "yes" all too soon, so I showed great restraint by looking at my calendar of graphic design deadlines and taking a week before saying "yes".
In anticipation for this project, I dug up my illustrations, and thought as I begin this journey it would be fun to share every step of the way with you including my past work which has not yet been posted on my blogs.
The following are a few illustrations completed in acrylic on illustration board.
My niece Sydney with her favorite feline, my parent's cat, Sherman
