I took part on SCBWI-EPA's annual Illustrators Day workshop and this year the assignment was to create a few illustrations for Little Red Riding Hood.
It's been a while since I posted here on Watercolor Wednesdays, and I just wanted to say hi!
I'm still chipping away at my picture book dummy. Baby steps.
Also, I've been on the hunt for an agent and am in the waiting to hear back stage.
Plus, I'm part of a group of other kidlitters who are working together to make November official Picture Book Month. (Both School Library Journal and Publishers Weekly ran articles on Thursday this week.) Visit the web site to find out more.
Is anyone else signed up for Picture Book Idea Month in November?

My blog and Facebook page is getting a good social hammering as I vent my creative enthusiasm while I rework my website. I feel exhausted just typing it.
This watercolour was created for the Illustration Friday theme "Scattered" and for my portfolio. I enjoyed it tremendously.

I also am working hard to get all the paintings done and hoping a few people can come and see this. It is in downtown or uptown Halifax. A trendy part of town. The painting are acrylic so that is a watercolor also sort of. Just thought I would show you.

The Painted Cat (you're welcome to join if cats are your thing). The horse, Warrior, was completed this week along with several others for a series I call The Sun Horse.

This is my first Watercolor Wednesdays post. I just finished a piece for this week's Illustration Friday word. I love running and just starting participating in local events this year, so I had this idea of illustrating a colorful crowd of runners 'scattered' across the streets.

Sipho would never again have trouble from bullies on his way home from school, not while he was safe up on his lionosaurus!
I originally had a different version digitally coloured, you can check it out here.
