Been awhile

Wow, I can't believe its been that long since my last post! I'm afraid I don't have too much to show for it either. I've been putting together sample booklets to send out to publishers and design companies. I'm also in the process of redoing my website. Yuch, probably my least favorite thing to do. But I guess its a necessary evil. It really needs to be updated and I wanted to add a couple more pages. So I figured since I'm doing that, I might as well just do it all over and give it a little face lift. I did do a quick painting of my logo/mascot, Sophia. If you've been to my website, you've seen her on there. She started out as just a logo and design element, but when I sent my work out, she seemed to be what the publishers liked best! So I decided to develop her into more of a character and give her some personality:-) Here is the new one which is also on the cover of the sample booklets I'm making.

And here are a couple of old ones of her.

Hopefully I will have my website up and running in a couple of weeks, with a whole new section dedicated just to her. (With the finished painting of her riding the dragon created by Piya Wannachaiwong for me. I'm sorry, Piya, that its not done yet. It will be, I promise!)

I finally finished my City Girl/Country Girl painting. This took so long for some reason! But I think it turned out well. People are having a hard time reading it though. I'm thinking about just separating it and making it into two different pictures so it makes more sense.
