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.

The Process...

Well, as an aspiring author and illustrator, I must keeping moving forward. One hurdle has been accomplished and others await in the wings. It is easy to compile a list of all the ideas worthy of completion. One must start and finish the project before completing another. Therefore, my ant story must continue. Once again, I will continue to post my progression as I create my paintings.
I must admit, I am feeling some frustration as to the next step of my process. Creating is only part of the battle. Now I need to find a way for an agent to look at my work, like it, and believe in it as much as I do. Back to the SCBWI site and find out if I need to finish the book's illustration before querying an agent or query before I am finished with the illustrations. So much to do. So little time to do it in. So little time? Yes, I am a mom of three boys and a wife to a very busy husband. Not much time for this project. I must make the most out of the time allotted. Still aspiring...
