For my children's illustration class we given the assignment to illustrate a fairy tale.  I decided on Puss in Boots!  I have always loved illustrating animals and footware oddly enough.  

 My first few sketches that I did were focused on how I wanted my character to look.  I was playing around with the idea of modernizing or sticking with the original character.  In the end I stuck close to the original character

This last image is color comp for the mood and atmosphere I was trying to create I wanted to stick with a yellow, orange, and blue color scheme.

This year I decided to participate in the Holiday Art Sale.  This was my first time as a vendor, in previous years I’ve only attended as a shopper.  I have to say I was really nervous about the sale and a week before the sale almost dropped out, but I found my courage and decided to stick with it and I have to say I’m really glad I did.  This was a wonderful opportunity for me to get over my fear of talking to people.  (I’m pretty awkward when I meet new people) My table was in between two alumni.  This was nice because I got to learn some tricks of the trade from seasoned vendors. They gave me some ideas to improve my presentation for the next sale . I ended up selling oil paintings, ceramics, and prints.  It was a long day from set-up to tear down, but I’m extremely grateful for this experience.  I’m definitely going to sign up for the spring sale.  

Here are a few pictures of what my table display looked like


It is now completely official.  I have now joined the digital age!  My website is almost complete I just have to do a few tweaking here and there. I have some work to do finishing my social media sites, so it looks like I have a long night a head of me.
