It's Autumn!

Hurray! It is officially autumn, and to celebrate I made an autumn postcard!

For those who enjoy autumn as I do, hopefully you can relate to taking a walk in the crisp autumn air as the wind blows the beautifully vibrant leaves. All of the warm colors, scarves, and hats perfectly compliment the chilly air so that you feel alive but still warm and cozy- the perfect combination. This is possibly my favorite season and I hope to share my love of it with all of you!

This is also done completely in Photoshop CS4 with my lovely tablet.
A re-visited project should be posted soon, however my dance classes start this week so my illustration time might be slightly more limited. Until then......

Happy Autumn!!!

Rooster's Adventure on Amazon!

Rooster's Adventure is officially available for purchase on under the books section!

If you enjoy this book and wish to support me or my art, please spread the word!

Despite being out of work with the other children's book illustrations, I have managed to keep myself busy with my autumn postcard, which is still a work in progress, as well as re-doing a piece I found from four years ago, which I will post soon! Currently I am still tweaking the line art.

How I have found time to wrap myself in art while I have my teaching job, my other job, babysitting, and dancing, I am not sure...but I am happy that I have! I hope it does not disappear when my dance classes start three times a week.

Until next time!!

Book Updates!

I have both good and bad news...I will get the bad new over with first.

The illustration project for the new children's book is being postponed, so it is up to me to do my own art. However, that shouldn't be too difficult, especially with holiday card season fast approaching!

And now for the good news! My first children's book, Rooster's Adventure, should be available to purchase through Amazon and CreateSpace eStore within the next two weeks! Currently it is also available on

However, Amazon/CreateSpace frankly does a better job with the printing and quality. It is also available to a much wider audience- most people know about Amazon, whereas few people are aware of So if you know anyone who you think would enjoy this book, please spread the word! If things go well with this book, I intend to publish my second children's book, Puppy's Problem, also through Amazon/CreateSpace.

Lastly, I am inspired so much by fall that I hope to do another autumnal card, possibly evolving into a series of cards. I will also start brainstorming for my winter cards, both of which will be for sale should anyone want to buy a print.

Best wishes to all of you! And thanks for reading!

'Till next time!
