My agent started up a blog recently. All of the artists will be contributing along with Nicole Tugeau, the headmistress. :) This is going to be a very fun and unique venture; I haven’t seen too many blogs quite like this one (and I read a lot of blogs…hehe).
This is a great opportunity to get a different perspective on the children’s illustration industry. We’re still experimenting with the content and direction of the blog, so if you have any feedback, please let us know! Submit questions, comments, and suggestions to the artists; and if you want to learn more about the business from an art rep’s point-of-view, I’m sure Nicole would love to hear from you!

I seem to have a thing for bears lately.
“Heavy” Illustration Friday theme + green for St. Patrick’s Day = a fat frog
Just a quick gouache sketch.
Great artists educate you, influence your style, and inspire great artwork by setting a high standard. But how familiar are you really with illustration history? I asked myself this the other day and was ashamed to realize that my knowledge was a bit fuzzy.
So, I started to research some of the great artists that influence illustrators today. This list is the result. If you are a student, practitioner, or fan of illustration, I truly believe you should know all these artists by name and their work.
I am certain I’ve left out plenty of great artists that deserve to be on this list. If you know of any artist or link that I failed to include, please leave a comment on this post. Now…click away!
I’ve put a little more work into my Three Little Pigs project that I posted about earlier. Here’s how it is going so far…
I just received my copy of Friend Magazine. This month, my illustrations are being used in the “Trying to Be Like Jesus” section. Check them out if you have access to a copy.
Here are the original illustrations:
That is one ugly bunny…
A quick sketch for Illustration Friday.
There are tons of drawing, painting, and cartooning books out there, and only a handful of them really capture my attention.
Well, I just ordered How to Draw and Paint Crazy Cartoon Characters. It contains tons of great artwork and includes tips, history, and advice that will truly help all you animators, children’s book illustrators, comic book artists, and caricaturists out there.
The author Vincent Woodcock has worked in the animation business as an animator, director, and character designer. His credits include films such as Space Jam and The Tigger Movie.
