Sugar Plum Fairy Hits the Streets

Now that the the Children's Book Illustration course is over and all the Thanksgiving left overs are eaten, I am ready to take on the holiday season! I'm gearing up to participate in an art show this Saturday at the UUCW church and have just announced that I will be hosting an open studio the weekend of December 17-18. 

I am offering my newest card design: a Hanukkah themed card ! 

 Hanukkah cards will be available in my shop December 1st.

I decided to enter the competition to win a free space in the next round of the Children's Book Illustration course. 

The assignment was to design the front cover of the imaginary book titled, "The Sugar Plum Fairy's Adventure". I truly had so much fun with this assignment! I really tried to relax and have fun and give myself plenty of time to see it with fresh eyes to fine tune and make this the most solid submission to date.  

My plan first thing in the new year is to design a marketing package to send to a small group of art directors and agents. If you are an art agent or art director in the children's book illustration and/or children's markets and would like to receive my newsletter and/or my marketing package please email me @ janemhoughton@gmail.com. Thank you. Here's to the best year yet in 2017 !
