A blog about my journey on illustrating, writing, and all the insanity in between. I began my journey as an aspiring author and found myself discovering a passion for illustrating for the children's book genre. I blog my art in progression, about the journey to my dream of traditional publishing, and more.
This is my journey in creating concepts, writing, illustrating, finding a literary agent, and becoming a published children's book author and illustrator for the picture book genre.

I read that some authors found inspiration by creating an illustration and writing a story around it. I felt this might be an interesting technique to try. My illustrations are progressing in detail and more. I really enjoy water color, chalk pastels, and coal. I am considering trying oil pastels next. Water color is quite calming. I think I may be adding water color as my next step in this piece. Practice can only help what I am aspiring to do. Part of the feedback I received was that there wasn't any illustration possibilities for my story. I am going to change that. A journey is better with friends. Andy is going to bring everyone along. Still Aspiring!
