A quick sketch of a little girl being rather vocal about some turtles she's spotted for this week's Illustration Friday:My husband can attest that I react similarly whenever I spot wild animals on our frequent hikes. I guess some of us never grow up...
The first idea that popped into my mind for this week's Illustration Friday topic was returning library books - probably because I had some library books that needed to be returned soon too! Here's the quick resulting sketch:
I'm a freelance illustrator working in the children's publishing industry. The greatest inspirations for my work are other contemporary children's book and fantasy illustrators as well as the natural world. I particularly enjoy painting happy animals close-up in natural surroundings. I also have a love for all things fantasy and hope to expand my fantasy portfolio in the near future.
I currently reside in Texas with my husband, daughter, and our very naughty cat.
