Rudi longs for a home...

I've been working on this illustration for the past few days nd am finally calling it complete. It will be part of a portfolio I'm putting together representing a children's picture book I'm writing titled, "The House On Rabbit Hill".

If you'd like to see the other sketches and transition of this illustration, visit my Instagram page. You might find some other lovely posts you'll enjoy.  More soon!

Sunday Sketches (Grandpa's Lamp, Pt. 2)

Last Sunday I shared with you a preliminary sketch of Jacob and his grandfather's lamp. This week, I'm sharing with you the finalized piece. It took some time trying to decide not just what colors worked well with this clothing in this snow scene but how to best portray the lit lamp. It was a bit of a struggle but finally came to what I felt was perfect for this heart-tugging illustration, drawing the reader in to want to know more about Jacob's journey.

Please do accept my apologies for still needing to make rounds for last week's Sunday Sketches. I hope to be all caught up be the end of this evening. Happy Sunday Sketches!
