Character study Have a wonderful weekend.

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Hello Friends,
Yeah I know, I've been missing in action. I'm still here
under my pile of work, but I came out just to share
another piece that didn't make it into a book.
I did this piece for the new, Billie Holiday book
that will be coming out this fall. Sometime certain
pieces just don't make the cut. While this one didn't
I still adore it. Hope you like it. Have a wonderful
week everyone!

Mr. & Lady Cover Art

Hello Wonderful people!
I know it's been a while, but I'm up to
my neck in work right now. It's been
super busy around my little studio which is
a good thing. I have been working on a wonderful
book about the late Billie Holiday and her sweet
dog named, "Mister". I am finished with the
inside art, but we have been working on the
cover art over the past couple of weeks.
It's not as simple as just drawing something
and passing it in and everyone saying" It's beautiful
let's use that. It's perfect!" Nope, I presented this cover
and it didn't make the cut. They had something else
in mind for the cover and I will keep that under wraps
for now. The book is due out this fall. I will keep you
posted. I wanted to share with you the artwork.
Hope that you all are having a wonderfully creative
