The Frogs of Tatnall Square Park

Last winter, I was asked to be take part in a book project titled "The Frogs of Tatnall Square Park"  written by John Carter.  I was selected as one of several local artists to create an illustration with the goal of raising money for our park! I chose to illustrate verse 12:

"Morgan was pleased with the things that she witnessed Children laughed and played on the playground equipment There was even a train called the Tom Thumb It didn't last very long but filled the park with fun"

Carie's Stories (Colored)

So I finally got around to adding color to my illustration titled Carie's Stories! The illustration depicts my sister, Carie surrounded by imagery of her favorite stories. From left to right...Ramona Flowers (Scott Pilgrim), Howl's Moving Castle, Airship (Castle In the Sky), The Shire (The Hobbit), Hogwarts(Harry Potter), Nobody Owens (The Graveyard Book), Dany's Dragon Eggs (Game of Thrones), Yuki & Kyo (Fruits Basket), Kazul (Dealing with Dragons). Everything is surrounded by the Two Trees of Valinor (The Silmarillion).

Hi Everyone! Here is a new whimsical illustration I finished last night. I've done a few Hot Air Balloon drawings before and always loved the theme.  I  experimented with Ink, watercolor and prismacolor. I also got the chance to try out my new Epson scanner...which I love!

I also wanted to thank everyone who has followed my blog so far! I reached over 100 followers since starting this blog this past summer! Thanks so much!

Illustration from the Ocean at the End of the Lane

oceanforestill "We pushed our way into a clump of trees, and through the clump of trees into a wood, and squeezed our way through trees too close together, their foliage a thick canopy above our heads. We found a clearing in the wood, and walked along the clearing, in a world made green."

-excerpt from Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
