21 Day: version3.20

Yes. My 21 day challenge has taken half a year. What can I say? I'm jumping back into the 'illustration for others' game after a seriously long hiatus next week. No time like the present to finish up the challenge and move on.

This came from Jennifer E. Morris' blog post this week - she used a technique from Kelly Light's character workshop at NESCBWI this year as a warm up - and challenged others to give it a whirl. Great fun! Next time Kelly has a workshop, I'm there!


21 Day Exercise: Third time around, still charming?


Well. I'm not going to fool myself into thinking that the 21 day sketch exercise will make it a real daily habit for me. Especially not on my third time around. But I do enjoy the jump start it gives to my projects, my sketching skills, and the blog. I believe this blog is now 6 years old, and I haven't had much passion for it in ages. I went in circles thinking of the 'pushes' I felt best about, and the 21 day exercise was one of them. So here we go again! Join me, if you will. Or just pop in to see what crops up.

This page was dedicated to character sketches for a picture book manuscript. I have a ways to go, so there might be another page of these girls tomorrow.

Happy doodling!
