~tweet tweet~

just a sweet little sketch for some nursery art canvases i am currently working on. it's been a while since i could do some "free" work due to comissions and some magazine illustrations (NOT that i'm complaining...) so, i wanted to do a couple of pieces of nursery art to add to my etsy shop www.enchantedeasel.etsy.com

the most boring birthday in the universe~finished illustration


here is the finished illustration/painting for a summer issue of stories for children magazine www.storiesforchildrenmagazine.com (not sure which one yet).
it is about a little boy and his grandmom who is babysitting him for a day. not just any day...but his birthday. and he is just so set out to believe that his 5th birthday will be "the most boring birthday in the universe";) so....
grandmom takes him on an "adventure" to the mall on this rainy day,where they ride the escalator and go into the "super duper shoe" shop to buy little noah his much coveted pair of green gecko galoshes:)
i got this done 9 days before the deadline. not too bad if i do say so myself...

the most boring birthday in the universe~sketch


so here is my sketch for my next project with stories for children magazine www.storiesforchildrenmagazine.com
a sweet little story entitled "the most boring birthday in the universe". it's about a little boy, his grandma, "the most boring birthday in the universe" and some cute green gecko galoshes...courtesy of grandma, of course;)
only one illustration was needed and i chose to illustrate the end part of the story...AND it was approved on the first go (lucky me). i am super excited to get my brush dipped in the paint and add some bright colors to this happy little piece:)
thanks to rosemarie (the art director over at sfc) for my second opportunity to work for this great kids magazine!
