Since January I have become a full time illustrator yaaaaaaay!!!!
MY DREAM CAME TRUE!!!!!
I have been working solidly since January and have work up until August time. I literally haven’t had the time to start promoting myself yet ha ha!!! I’m not complaining… Not many people can say they love their job. How many people can put on their Facebook status… Painting in my pj’s today!
I have had several commissions including some educational work with Oxford University Press and greeting cards companies.
I was so excited when my publisher from Palimpsest Press asked me to do a picturebook based on the paintings she had seen of Oscar for their new imprint Magpie Books.
It was an idea I had ages ago and I ended up submitting one of these paintings to Images competition and it ended up in their yearly annual and exhibition.
Sooooo I sent in my story idea and with the help of talented Jordan Troutt the story of Oscar was ready to be illustrated. It will be ready to go to print very soon. I can’t wait to see the actual book. It is based on one of my two cats Oscar who is really greedy and fat. So the character Oscar is wanting more milk and takes a journey up to the moon to share a milky feast with the other cats.
