Hi everyone! For new visitors, my name is Roz and I illustrate for the trade, educational and magazine markets. I'm self taught, learning the ropes from internet resources, generous illustrators and the scbwi.
Initially, my work was created traditionally with felt, fabrics and embellishments. Then a couple of years ago, I developed a digital style that I call "digital felt" where I scan the felts and fabrics then build in photoshop.
The illo above isn't a true representation of my style,though. It's more an example of what I'm doing right now - exploring and experimenting. I created this little girl in Adobe Illustrator and then finished her in Photoshop. Usually I work with tons of layered files and drop shadows but I wanted to see if I could come up with something quicker while still embodying my look. This was fun but wasn't "quicker". It took hours. haha! Oh well, maybe with more practice.
It sure is great to be blogging again and having Deb join our group makes it all that more special! We'll be updating the blog regularly so if you're a "picture book junkie" too, be sure to bookmark us.
