Its been a while since I posted art. I won't make excuses but I was closing my old shop and moving to a new one, as well as taking an overdue trip to Puerto Rico to visit family.
So, this is a thought of how a couple characters (not the pug) may look for a SUPER TOP SECRET story I'm working on written by a couple of VERY talented writers. I don't use caps often so take it seriously people! 

The story involves 2 kids - a boy and a girl, as well as lots of machinery, and more characters I will save for later. I plan to spend more time developing the characters' personality (more sketching) than I did with Philo & Sophy. There won't be a race toward a big deadline with an art exhibit either, but we will be completing packets with a few finished illustrations to send off to publishers.

Philo & Sophy Mailers

After agonizing over color in the printed books, I'm finally satisfied and ready to mail 'em out.
Each package consists of:
1. The printed book, from
2. Our query letter
4. all inside one, eco-friendly "rugged" mailer (hoping "rugged" means it will arrive in pristine condition)

I sent 5 out last week, and will send another 5 out as soon as I get the next order. In a nutshell, it's expensive, but worth every penny.

Shop! Buy!

I just updated my Etsy shop with all the originals I have left from the Philo & Sophy book, as well as some sweet prints.
page 14

page 15
I really like how pages 14-15 look separately and without the text. Hm, I may just order some myself...
