Let me first apologize for the delay between posts! As you may have noticed, I have moved house (so to speak) ...over to a new website that I have created on my own with the help of Squarespace.com. Thank you for your patience ! My hope is that this new home will prove bug-free and easier for me to update and maneuver around. There are still a few holes in my presentation but if I wait until it's all "done and dusted" I will be an old woman!
This past month I have worked on several commissions, done sketches for new ideas, written an exhibition proposal, learned new skills in Adobe Illustrator, attended the online forum offered and hosted by Jennifer Lee of the Right Brained Business Plan , worked on my business plan, and cleaned my studio.
The Lilla Rogers Make Art That Sells Boot Camp took a hiatus for the month of April but is back this month and has us sketching figures, faces and vintage dolls. I became immersed in this mini assignment this week ! I have long told myself (and even potential clients) "Oh, I don't do figures" - ugh! Well, I was able to inform my ego that lives inside a box of comfort and lies that, yes, in fact I do "do figures" ! I took notes from some of my favorite children's book illustrators like Tomie Depaola, Jan Brett and Mary Engelbreit and found my own voice.
