Too dark

Here's the one I talked about earlier. It's too blue...too dark. Not to mention the drawing isn't right, either. I ignored proportions in favor of capturing the melancholy mood.


Here's the image I'm using for a new Winter/Valentine's mailing my agent is doing. I have a really hard time choosing or making art for my portfolio, because I want it to be perfect and put too much pressure on myself. This one I painted just for fun a few weeks ago, when I was working on an educational project about kids going to see a ballet.

My blog is called Chocolate Luck because of this little drawing.

What I like best about my artwork is that it is kind of loose and lively. This is the first ink drawing I did where I was able to relax and get a nice result without feeling like I had to make every line perfect. It also combines two things I'm interested in drawing: fantasy and children of color. And chocolate...well, that is my absolute favorite thing to eat. And luck? Can't talk about it, I might jinx it!

Josias, Hold the Book

I've recently received copies from my publisher of my newest book! It will be released in March. The book is about a young boy in Haiti who grows a small plot of vegetables for his family. When the beans don't come up, he begins to worry. Find out how he solves his problem and learn a bit about Haiti by reading the book!
