Adding some colo(u)r to my winter…

Not perfect scans, but still having fun learning to illustrate and designing greeting cards (and writing, of course)…

    Your illustrations are marvelous. I love Charlie especially.

      Thanks, Darlene – I did that Charlie drawing during a weekend workshop with an artist named Guy Hobbes, who does amazing art with coloured pencils.

    I really like the colours you use! You’ve been keeping busy. You already know I love your work. I am partial to Charlie, though. Hard to resist. Hope edits are continuing to go well.

      Both manuscripts are with the editors ATM, so doing art and writing something else. Let me know if your Friday looks open…

    I’m not saying this to be fawning, but I LOVE your illustrations. I’m partial to line drawings anyway, and the naive perspective suits me. Keep it up!

      Love that phrase “naive perspective.” I feel like there’s a concerning trend away from “kid-friendly” illustrations to more “adult-friendly” illustrations. Have to say the time I spend at my art desk passes so quickly. And thanks so much for your encouraging note!
