A good friend asked me to create a logo for her business. Here's the final product. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. In so many ways, logos are easier than picture books. It was a bit tricky for me to figure out how to manipulate the text just so, but I learned from the experience, and that's what counts, isn't it?

A few years ago (about when I started this blog) I began participating in illustrating for Stories for Children Magazine. Next month will be their last issue (perhaps indefinitely?) and I chose to participate. It's been a great way for me to have a reason to illustrate, and I have certainly seen some growth as a result. Here's the illo, and if you're intrigued, look for Molly and the Watering Can in March.
I think, were I to repaint this, I would make the watering can silver (or gold, maybe?). Otherwise, I'm pretty satisfied with the finished product.

OK, so this is more boring than what I usually do, but since I did it I'll show it. We'll be moving whenever we can sell our house and my husband wants a website to showcase our townhome. He thought a couple of watercolors might help it stand out and enlisted yours truly to do them. I have to admit that making something this realistic isn't as much fun for me to do, but the final product is satisfying. And now I have a portrait of our first home.
