April 3rd Thursday: A Big Problem for Lucy

Here's the illustration I was talking about yesterday. I think it's done, but I might tweak some more another day. Since the text might be a little small for you, it says:

This was a pretty BIG problem, but Lucy was confident. She popped open her magic toolbox and immediately found the perfect tool for the fix.

As much as I'd like to win the contest, I'd love even more to be chosen for a critique to know how to take this to the next level 'cause I don't know.

Design 100 Kindergarteners #2

Here's #2. I have to say I don't like it as much as my first, partly because her anatomy looks too off. My preliminary sketch looks better, but since I'm choosing not to lightbox things and since I try out new ideas on the fly, it didn't work out as well. But isn't that what this project is about?

If you're interested in what else I'm working on, I'll be done with my SVS illustration very soon.  (I'm very excited about it!) I've also worked on other illustrations I'm not ready to post, and I wrote and sent out two articles (one of which was rejected). Still, between last week's spring break for my kids and other distractions this week, it's taken too long to be as productive as I want!
