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.

Something new for me...

At the conference, I learned a lot about the need of a Wacom tablet. I was gifted a gently used Intuous 3 about a month ago. Unfortunately, I had NO idea what to do with it. Well, I finally uploaded and elements. Here are my first attempts at using my wacom tablet.
 I played with a few features. I first changed the tip on the pen to the grey tip that has the spring in it. I love this tip! Some of the balloons are free hand and some are using the features to
manipulate lines. Fun times!

The next piece I did was primarily free hand with overlays. I am excited to try some more with different techniques. I am a bit confused with the layers, but am excited to read up on them! The tablet is very easy to use. I thought I would have a hard time working with it due to screen and tablet orientation, but it is really quite simple!
