New Blog

51 weeks ago, in May of last year, I created a new blog that only now have I had time to jumpstart, called Snippets and Bibbets. The blog will showcase all manner of artwork that our studio has created for kids. While art for kids is only a portion of what our studio gets involved in, I'm somewhat amazed at how many kids projects we've created, and how many art files we've stockpiled.

Much of that work has been large-scale art, for installations of all sorts, which we will be showcasing in the months ahead.

Just this month though, a book that we illustrated has been published and is being distributed. We are going to start the blog out by sharing some of the process of the book's development (it took three years on our part, though only a fraction of that was spent on actual artwork). We will show much of our preliminary work leading up to finishes, and discuss candidly the trials and tribulations of our experiences.

You can jump over there by clicking here, and I hope you will consider 'following' us as we pull open some old art files.

Your preview art is beautiful, joyful, dramatic, and attention getting- perfect for children's picture book illustration!

Thanks Annie! It's going to be fun to go back and put together an evolutionary assemblage for the art process. It was quite a journey.
