This illustration was slightly inspired by an old Pixar short called Knick Knack, using some shading techniques I learned at Dan Santat's illustrators workshop. Look Mom! I'm using complementary colors :D
Also, I finished teaching my cartoon workshop and would like to share my student's blogs. They've come a long way (one student even started the class saying he couldn't draw) and you can tell they spent a lot of time designing the look of their blogs. I had a blast teaching the kids and am hoping to teach the workshop again either this fall or summer. Until then, onto illustrating my first picture book!
