No one notices him and he just wants to fit in. His only friend is a little girl named Rasha. She believes in him and makes him feel loved! When he's happy he turns from blue to pink and has the power to make rainbows! Now everyone can see him!

It's about a leopard family and a python family.  I'll be turning in all sketch for this job in a couple days. There's about 35 or 40 total.  Thu, 25 May 2017 17:40:43 +0100 & Co/id=1278/blog/post=2669/Cover-sketch-detail-for-A-Family-Pet/ & Co/id=1278/blog/post=2669/Cover-sketch-detail-for-A-Family-Pet/ 3X3 The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration, Honorable Mention  3X3, The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration's 14th Annual International Illustration Competition.

It is perfect timing for me to have found this resource since I am now embarking on a project I'm calling, "Loosening Up My Style to Appeal to More Trade Pubs!" Every illustration I do MUST be made up of.... Simple Lines, Burst of color, and Obvious Fun Wed, 12 Oct 2016 08:18:42 +0100 & Co/id=1278/blog/post=2527/Loosening-Up-My-Style/ & Co/id=1278/blog/post=2527/Loosening-Up-My-Style/ I Didn't Realize I Had a Blog  Basically this is just a test of the "childrensillusrators blog feature" because i didn't realize i had this option.  I mean, i noticed the word on my menu list, but i never actually clicked on the word. Hey, things were a bit crazed when i first joined "childrensillustratos"  and i'm only now attempting to get better acquainted with the features.  I just added Key Words to all my illustrations, so think of this as Baby Steps.  But i always have "Behind the Art" stories so i'll be back soon. Next time with pictures to share.
