I just spent a wonderful weekend playing board games at a friend's family cabin and there was a charming gnome chilling outside the entrance. I decided to reinterpret him for Illustration Friday's "carry." I figured blueberries would be the perfect thing to carry for the summer season :)
I went for a less saturated look and I think I may have gone too far. . but hey, that's part of the exploration process right? And here's another free coloring page, so you can try out your own color combinations!
I'm not sure when my next entry will be. I'm in the middle of teaching cartoon workshops again to some very bright and talented kids. You may remember the results from last year here.
Also, I'm excited to announce that I'll be giving a talk about my picture book A Moment in Time at Book Passage on Saturday, December 8, 11am. I'll be talking about turning moments into memories and memories into universal stories (through pictures and words). I hope to see you there!
