Books I worked on

About Me

My Photo
A little about my artwork: I interpret the words written on a page by telling the story behind the story working with pen and ink, watercolor and Photoshop, I fuse old techniques with modern ones to create a world that every drawing can speak to a child or grownups.

What does the Bear say?

Since I am taking it slow this week I thought for fun I could show some of my process of creating an illustration.
 
It all started with sketch that I did during the 2014 SCBWI Winter Conference
 
 



  From that I did an ink sketch
 
 
 then I was playing with watercolor and came up with this
 
 
 
I went back to the original sketch scanned it and stretched it with Photoshop
also added some flowers
 
 
from that I re-inked part of the head
 

and I pencil it onto watercolor paper and came up with this
 

Was not a 100% happy so I scanned the darn thing and changed a few things around
until I got this  
 
 
So not sure if I am completely happy with this I may go back and redo it one or two more times. But for now I am going to leave it alone and work on something else
