Super Phil and His Robot

Phil and His Robot
Super Phil Series

The conference is tomorrow and even though I didn't get to the 'A Backyard Circus' series...I got quite far and made great progress. I put my nose to the grindstone these past couple months and put a serious dent in updating my portfolio.

I finished the last piece today; the third image in my series called Super Phil. In this illustration, Super Phil abandons his rocket boots for something more reliable, a robot! And it works!

Now, I'm off to print my latest illustrations and labels, arrange my portfolio, gather all my paperwork, notebooks, business cards, and whatever else I need for the ensuing weekend.

Happy dance!

Super Phil Series...In the Works!

Red Cape

Rocket Boots
Super Phil Series

Still working it, right up to the deadline. I just finished updating two of my three illustrations for my Super Phil series. He's a groundhog that loves adventure and innovation. He wants to be a super hero, and starts off with a red cape and mask.

Then, he invents his own rocket boots in hopes of flying high enough to pick the cherries from the neighboring tree. By the time he's done fine tuning his rocket boots, there is only one cherry left and some serious competition.

The third image is my robot image and it's next in line. Mere days left before my portfolio is due to display at the SCBWI Western Washington Annual Conference.

Wish me luck!

Updated this image for my portfolio. The teddy bear makes a nice addition. Onward and upward! Still have a few working days left to get things done before the conference.

Grimm with a Twist

Smack-a-roo!
The Hedgehog Prince - Vignette 4

Working away on my Master's Class assignment (SCBWI Western WA Annual Conference) of creating 5 vignettes depicting a popular Grimm's fairy tale, with a twist. I played off The Frog Prince with a hedgehog prince. Not so easy to kiss!

I've finished my second roughs and am now adding color to the finals. This is my first one done! Four more to go before I can mail off next week!
