I am in the middle of a class at mcad on Children's Book Illustration, taught by illustrator Carrie Hartman. It has been pretty intense, with a ton of content stuffed into a six week class, so we're moving along at a pretty quick clip. The first assignment was to create a book spread based on a provided book title. I chose The Littlest Panda, and decided to work digitally since we had basically a week to create a finished illustration. I am loving the class so far! Did I mention my summer has been CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY? In addition to trying to get class assignments done:
- I started a new job this week, as a book designer at a local educational publisher!
- I am still working on freelance design projects with several clients
- I am cranking along with new designs for Silhouette America
- One of my designs has been licensed for a greeting card with a well-known grocery chain and will be available in their fall line!
- I am enjoying summer with the hubby and boys!!! Win will tell you that Wee Bop Dino Camp was a roller coaster ride, but mostly summer is turning out to be awesome.
Here's to sipping gin and tonics by the slip-n-slide!
