2018: 110-116/365

This past weekend, I went to the New England SCBWI Conference in Springfield Massachusetts.  My days were jam-packed with learning, inspiration, and fun.  I am still processing all of the information I received from the incredible workshops I took (I will definitely post some highlights next week).  But...

In the meantime, I wanted to share some photos from a trip my friend Dee and I took to The Dr. Seuss Museum.

It was so much fun to get a glimpse into the life of Theodor Geisel... I really enjoyed looking at his work space, seeing his original art, and reading letters he wrote to family and friends.  It seems pretty obvious that the man known as
Dr. Seuss would be funny, but I never knew just how clever and fun he really was!

(More from my trip next week...)

2018: 109/365

As I sit looking at the Spring snow out my window,
I wonder if May flowers will ever really arrive...

Even though my friend Christine has assured me that warmer weather will be coming soon, I thought I might have to take matters into my own hands...
Luckily, I remembered that I know how to make my own flowers!
(I even created a tutorial so you can too.)

Hopefully I'll see some flowers (or even the grass!) soon...
But in the meantime, it's good to have a back-up plan!

(And, the snow keeps on falling...)

I don't think whoever coined the phrase,
"April showers bring May flowers."
meant snow showers.

2018: 106/365


I'm back!!!
It's hard to believe that it was a Spring break.  Snow and ice would definitely suggest otherwise... But that's a story for another day.

The illustration that I was working on before my blogging break reminded me of a Cinderelephant painting I did (shown at the top of this post).  And, since today is also "Save the Elephant Day", I would like to share a variety of elephant art that I've created over the years...

(See the start to finish process pics here.)

(Find out about this painting's unusual inspiration and see the process here.)

I hope you found this post as fun as I did...
(I didn't remember how many elephants I've created over the years!)
You might think that I've had my fill, but seeing this actually makes me want to make more elephant art in the future!
