I just wanted to post this new illustration I done. If you read my post on, "Expressive Picture Book Characters, then you know I'm not as comfortable drawing children as I am animals.
So I decided to practice illustrating children. I think I will start a series on different emotions with children and use them for my tear sheets.
What is a tear sheet you may ask? A tear sheet is basically printed samples of your work. As I was going through my 2017 Children's Writer and Illustrator Market, the majority of book publishers want illustrators to mail tear sheets to them to review.
I found a couple of great sites that explain how to create tear sheets : mrjonesey.com and Lisa Thiesing Children's Book Illustrator.
So, I will add tear sheets to my list of things to do for 2017. Once I get them done I will post them so you can review.
Until then, it's back at the drawing board for me.
