Illustration Inspiration

For my book Imagination Destination, the inspiration for my two lead characters were my very own cats.  I am currently working on my third book and the illustrations for it.  It will include many of the same characters from Imagination Destination with some new characters as well.  I've been working hard but haven't gotten as far as I would like.  Hopefully I will get more time to devote to them soon.

Staying active and using your imagination will be included in this book as well as having a focus on bullying and how it could be handled.  Two new characters are based on a white Persian cat and a Siamese cat.  

Hopefully you will love these characters as much as I do.  I wanted to post up a sneak peak of one of my illustrations including these characters but unfortunately I am having troubles with the file.  I am hoping I don't have to redo the whole thing.  I will keep you updated and hopefully be able to post a reveal soon.  Back to drawing for me.  Have a great week :)

Happy Easter

Spring Break has finally arrived!  I am taking advantage of being off this week by doing some spring cleaning, catching up on my To Be Read list and finally being able to start the illustrations for my third book. I am excited to finally have the time to dedicate to them.  Hoping to have my book out by this summer :)

This week also happens to be Easter weekend. Easter is not celebrated the same way by everyone, some people celebrate Spring. Do you have plans?  Any traditions you and your family share?  I always loved coloring and decorating eggs, hiding and finding Easter eggs, searching for my Easter basket and of course eating chocolate. Finding books in my basket was always exciting!  I loved to read as a child, I still do, and I was lucky enough to have a family who read to me.  What was one of your favorite things to get for Easter any special memories?  Feel free to leave me a comment.  You can also find me on Facebook.

Did you know you could color eggs by using Kool-Aid? Need more Easter/Spring food or craft ideas?  Head on over to my Pinterest page, just click the board All For Kids.
