Happy New Year!

This is an image for the cover of January 2010 Stories for Children Magazine--I finally got to do a cover! I used an image that I'd done earlier & added to it. The sad thing is they're going out of business after March 2010. I'll miss them--I've been illustrating for them for over a year now. They'll be missed... oops, I've been messing with the blog colors--let me know if they don't read well.

Happy New Year Linda!! I love this soft periwinkle blue color! It's very nice and calm. What a lovely illustration. So girly and festive indeed! I love the action. Sooooo sorry about the magazine. So many of these wonderful children' magazines are going under. Our children need them so much. I know that you will get more wonderful opportunities to show your fabulously whimsical work. Keep doing your beautiful work! Hugs always

Linda, I love this illo! I got my copy of SFC yesterday, and the cover looks fantastic! Your skater has got some pizazz all right! I love her tights and her cool pink skates. You've also done a great job with the color palette on this one! You should be proud of yourself.

(And I too, am lamenting the end of SFC -- I've really enjoyed working with them. It's been a great experience!)

It's so sad when great things end! I think you're sending them off in style though. This is such a cheery illustration!

This is great! I always enjoy "space" in illustrations and this has the perfect balance.
