Here's a little work in progress for nothing in particular. In the upper left corner I'm going to have a knight in mid-air ready to strike. Of course, the dragon couldn't care less. I'm post more as it comes. I'll put the final in it's own post.

Here's a pic of my booth at the Wyoming Book Festival on the 19th of this month. It went REALLY good! I was only there for 5 hours and I sold 11 books. Now, I don't know if that's good for the convention/fair thing, but I thought that it was good. Seeing as the Helper Arts Festival was two days/16 hours and I only sold 5 books, I think this book festival went well.
Hold on a sec. Am I wearing the same shirt as the HAF? Ah jeez. I am. Oh well, I'll make it a point to where something different the next time I do a show.
Okay, so, I don't normally do this, but this week on iTunes is a song called Bulletproof from an artist called La Roux, if it's not obvious from picture. Anyways, I've always been a fan of 80's female pop music since I was a kid. Madonna, Debbie Gibson, Belinda Carlisle, A'me Lorain, etc.
Anyways, this song has that same kind of vibe to it. So, if you like 80s female pop and Nintendo music, then you'll like this song. And it's FREE on iTunes this week. Can't beat that right? Anyways, enjoy.

Here's a sketch for the little girl that's going to be pretending to be that fairy. The nice thing is that instead of trying to make up little girls, my cousin is going to shoot me some $$$ to make it his daughter. Hey, less work for me to make one up and I get some $$$ from it. It's a win-win.

So I decided to take a little break from my GIRL edition of "If I could be anything..." and do this little piece. I've always liked satyrs, so this is a WIP (work in progress), that I'm currently doing. I'll just edit the post more as it progresses instead of making a new post for every image, so if you want to see the progression, then just keep checking back everyday. You can see the light sketch underneath the heavier black line. I tend to work in a more "comic bookish" way than the traditional children's book style. I just feel like I have to put a black line or a dark line around everything. Maybe it's the hours and hours of cartoons I watched in the 80s or it's my feeble attempt to control everything, either way this is the style I feel most comfortable in. Enough rambling, enjoy.
