Story Time Fun


A couple weeks ago I made a visit to our local book store, The Country Bookshop.
Since it was during the day, several classes were invited. As I read the story, I used a large felt board with my movable characters which kept all young eyes focused.
It was a grand success, so I plan to use the felt board along with my overhead presentation for my coming school and bookstore visits. I'll hope to share with you how I made my felt board and characters next time.

So, What does an illustrator do on their day off?


So What does an illustrator do on their day off? Fellow Flapjacket artist, Kim Sponaugle's blog ask this question.
I can't resist a pencil and bit of paper myself.
So I ask my illustrators, What do you Do?"

Great Blog for Illustrators on Jacketflap




I found the best blog as I searched around on Jacketflap yesterday. Maybe you have seen it too, but just in case check out, The Drawing Board for Illustrators. I found great resources and useful information like, marketing ideas, what to put in your portfolio, important network links and so much more. I had to add it to my blog reader and I bet you will too.
