I drew the pencil sketches of my little friend Michelle awhile back. I thought I would go back into them and add some shading for this Illustration Friday topic "The Blues."
At a recent portfolio review I was told that my sketches would work well for inside chapter books and middle grade novels. I'm going to be doing a bunch more showing a little bit older kids in a variety of narrative scenes. What do you think of this style?

The talented Elizabeth Dulemba was the Grand Prize W.I.N.ner of this year's SmartWriters.com Competition. One of her prizes was a copy of Anastasia Suen's PICTURE WRITING. Since she already has much loved copy, she held a drawing to give the new one away and I won! I've heard great things about this book, so I'm excited to read it. Thanks e!
