The Elephant in the Room

Here's to the proverbial elephant in the room. 
I found him appropriate to feature on my blog as I apologize for being away for a while. I'm sure it's the same as for many of you--- I find myself in the chaotic throws of summertime. Pulled this way and that as I mourn the loss of my peaceful work-from-home weekdays.

This is a piece that will be going out on my latest promo. It is from an assignment given to us by an art director at a recent SCBWI conference. It is from an excerpt from Kate DiCamillo's, THE MAGICIAN'S ELEPHANT. It was really fascinating to see how other illustrators saw the same scenario.

So here's a big shout out to all of you who love your families and kids dearly, but who also suffer the loss of spontaneous creative expression.

Happy, happy summer!

  1. The boots still make me laugh! Summer is the elephant in the (studio) room! We will make it to August, despite the pachaderm paradigm.
