Spring Promo at Illustration for Kids

Enjoying the spring weather as I work on my own book dummy and a piece for our spring promo over at Illustration for Kids:
And a thank you to Lori West at Curledupbooks.com for nice review of The Great Matzoh Hunt.

Thats about it around here. I've been taking a slight break from Facebook and Twitter, and giving myself more time for personal projects. Also I need to start doing some research on my upcoming trip to Tokyo. I can't wait!

Adorable. Really enjoying your new color palette. Are you still working in AI or have you transitioned to PS? I know you were dabbling with it before.

Jannie aka Chickengirl said...

Thanks everyone:-)

Roz-I'm still working in AI- old habits die hard! But I've been exploring different techniques but still keep it in AI for the ease of editing.
