These are just a few random sketch's I've done for the scbwi magazine that never got in or were put on a waiting list. Will see what happens with these.

Tomie Depaola Competition

First off let me say that I have never been a fan of chicken little. Receiving this opportunity to apply to a SCBWI conference scholarship was more then appreciated but the assignment was a very tough Challenge. To enter you have to illustrate a paragraph from Chicken Little. This assignment brought up two things Ive been avoiding. A large detailed scene and a composition with more then two characters. I suppose this was great practice and possibly a very good portfolio piece. I would love any critiques/ opinions on my final piece. Along with the final I have my rough sketch (slightly different. Loosey Goosey gave me lots of problems) and a photo of some of my researching. Remember that the library is always your best friend. I ordered over seventeen chicken little books and took photos of my favorite spreads for comparison.

Tyler's Halloween

This was a project I finished a while ago for my cousins baby shower. I couldn't finish it in time and it took a while to get to her so that's why I waited so long to post any art from it. I'm still unsure if any of it will be in my portfolio for the conference. I'm only allowed one book dummy and my red riding hood is looking pretty good. More to come soon!
