A mystery...

This is a series of illustrations I did for the 2017 SCBWI Narrative Art Award:

Create three illustrations from the same story that display Dilemma/Conflict/Resolution
– There must be three different characters in the story 

– Your art style must be appropriate for one of these two specific audience/book genres (Choose one):

 Full color, intended for a picture book for 4 to 7-year-olds
 -OR -
Black and white, intended for a MiddleGrade book for 8 to 11-year-olds

– Do not include text in your images

In honor of the 125th anniversary of Sherlock Holmes, depict a mystery appropriate for your audience. 

I didn't win, but it was A LOT of fun to do!

Happy Squirrel Appreciation Day!

I've had squirrels on my mind a lot these days!
I even "saw" a squirrel in the very first 
@3yroldscribble #finishthescribble I did...

And, I bought a squirrel messenger bag from Bolsa Bonita 
(one of my favorite Etsy shops)...

It appears I'm a bit "nuts" about them... Don't be surprised if more squirrel characters make their way onto the blog this year!

I often joke that if brushes could talk, mine would scream!  Sometimes they sit in water for weeks, some of them sit in water that eventually dries up, they get crusty...  To say that I am hard on them is quite an understatement.  Today, I'd like to let you in on a brush-saving secret...

I have been using this brush cleaner since art school, and it is amazing... Brushes that I thought were goners are miraculously transformed!  Because of this product, I still use a few brushes that I bought almost 20 years ago!
(I am not getting paid to say this, I just wanted to share.)

Do you have any products you can't live without?
