Bump in the Night

A while back, I spoke with the illustration coordinator at our local chapter of the SCBWI.  She mentioned that she wanted to create a monthly illustration challenge with a blog to showcase our local talent.  This month is our first challenge with the theme, "things that go bump in the night".

I confess I'm not Halloween's biggest fan, but this piece was really fun to do!  Check out our group blog at Go Bananas Illustration!


Edit: I just noticed this week's Illustration Friday topic and decided to use this piece for that, too!

IF: Beneath

I don't look much different on the outside, but beneath the surface...

IF: Beneath

I announced my big news on Twitter last week, but in case you missed it, I am PREGNANT with my second child! We are absolutely thrilled.  I am due at the end of April, 2011.

It seems that many children's illustrators out there have very small children.  How many of you are freelancers who worked while pregnant and/or with a newborn?  I'd love to hear your stories!
