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!
