Once upon a time...


Once upon a time, I created this illustration for an SCBWI illustration contest. The subject was "Wacky Wedding".

While I've never been completely happy with this final illustration - I was sort of experimenting with characters (the main ones), and in the end they kind of feel emotionally removed from me a bit due to that - I do love how the supporting cast came out! :)

I love you're drawings!! They're so great! They're so much fun and so ornate and artistic at the same time. I can only begin to imagine how long it took you to draw these! Your one entitled "once Upon a Time" really reminds me of those awesome drawings from those old HighLights magazines where you have to find the hidden picture. you're picture is so rich and complicated, while looking at it, I kept expecting to find a frying pan or rolling pin in it somewhere!
