Good-bye 2018 & hello 2019!!

As we head into 2019 I am excited to be part of a creative community called IlloStories put together by two lovely and talented illustrators - Deborah Stein & Erica Root . For the entire year IlloStories will present themes and prompts to help us inspiring illustrators create exciting and new work for our portfolios.

If you are interested in joining the fun join the IlloStories facebook group, and keep an eye out for all the work with the tags @illostories #IlloStories on FB and instagram.

I tend to do well with challenges and prompts (it is my love for being a student :) Below are my #topnine from my instagram feed and 3 come from Creativebug’s class, Daily Painting Challenge: 31 Painted Patterns with Lisa Congdon and one of my illustrations that I did in Lilla Rogers’ Make Art That Sells Bootcamp. So it will be fun to see what will come from IlloStories .

Thank you & peace,
