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.

Tick tock

So I am trying to put this together. I keep scrapping sketches because they are not perfect. I can create my vision better with the use of a paintbrush. Everything starts with a sketch. I have to remind myself that this is a "work in progress" grant. It isn't the judgement of a final product. Part of what I love is the detail with use of color. We all have our strengths. My husband has had a photoshop program installed on this computer for me. I am trying to use it to crop, adjust color, and add text. Below is my first attempt. The sketch is incomplete, but you get the idea.
Luckily, I have a book from the library. It is a bit ancient, but helps with the storyboarding required for the grant. Luckily, I have a super hero on hand who guides me in the destruction of self doubt. Wow. That little voice is a killer. Onward and upward. :)Still aspiring...
