Art Dump

I've always known that my strengths lie in my line art but that hasn't stopped me from wanting my inking and colouring skills to be just as strong. And I know that the only way I'll get better is with more practice - no easy outs with magic potions, genies with three wishes, or flying robot unicorns (this one would be hella cool if they really existed!). Just practice.

So this art dump is just that: more practice.
Finally broke out the Prismacolor cool grey markers - yay for me!

Something to Worry About

The latest issue of REAL (Read Everything And Learn): The Canadian Kids' Magazine, Elementary Edition was just released and yours truly has more artwork in it. The story is entitled "Something to Worry About" and it features Willie the Pig who is a constant worry wart and can't understand why all his animal friends are so laissez-faire. They try to tell him to enjoy life and not be so serious until a hurricane shows up at their door and who do you think is the only one prepared? Spoiler alert: it's the pig!

David Cutler also has some kick-ass illustrations in the issue as well as kneeing everyone's eyeballs in the nards with his cover art!

I'd like to tell everybody to go pick up an issue but, sadly, it's only available through subscriptions. Erica, the editor, informs me that she's hoping to get the magazine in bookstores within six months so fingers crossed.
