Decisions Decisions

I am going to have postcards made (finally!) to send out to publishing companies, but I can't decide which image to go with. Can anyone help me out? Advice is always greatly appreciated :)

Illustration Friday:Signs

Made fresh for IF.
I got the idea of the little girl holding up a sign to talk to her fish from a story my uncle in-law told me about his niece. She was trying to talk to his bird by drawing it pictures.

Illustration Friday: Neighbor

This is a little picture that I did for fun. Unfortunately I learned today that my scanner does not do pastels justice! They are made of little crystals so when the light from the scanner shines on it, it changes the appearance. (Thankfully I have photoshop to help restore the color) I will have to research some more about this problem.

My Journey Begins

Welcome! I am beginning my journey to become a full time children's illustrator. I plan to do a little bit each day towards my goal and keep track of it here. I am constantly reading about other artists and learn so much from them. I hope to share what I learn. Any advice from others is greatly appreciated!
So far I have put together my website (, set up a basic account on (, and last but not least, started my creative blog.
