Just for fun a coloring page. Who are the models for this Sleepytime Coloring Page you may ask? Well this is Hanzel (the kitty) and Zoey (the shih tzu). Zoey got a new bed from Santa this year and Hanzel can not seem to resist the coziness of her present. Maybe next year Santa will bring them a bigger bed!
Click the image and select print! Send me your colored version and I'll post it on my blog, Happy Coloring!

I am over due for an update! I am happy to say I joined a fantastic critique group. It has a lot of energy and constant motivation flow. Everyone is so helpful and there is such a unique and diverse style to everyone's work as well as their experiences. Through this critique group we are in the process of starting up a Showcase of all of our work as well as some other fabulous illustrators that would like to post. Hopefully every week we will be posting new illustrations and once we officially go live will be sending the link to editors, art directors, schools, and other organizations. Just a little tool to help with exposure. Lately I have found myself in a bit of a creative funk and really need to get the ball rolling with new ideas. I have a sketch due soon for the second cover of the Desert Magic Series written by Cindy Davis and John Richters and would like to "bust out" a new portfolio piece, possible postcard before that. I am also waiting to hear back on a publisher about a possible book contract, more on that later. I will also be sending out a newsletter sometime in the near future so if you are not already signed up feel free to do so by submitting your email address on the right of this page!
