Finally, an Illustration!
Well, here it is. I finally finished a sample illustration!! When I was in 5th grade, I learned that Queen Elizabeth's dresses were so heavy that her servants had to carry her (maybe "push her" would be a better description for my picture). I thought it would be a fun illustration. It turned out to be a VERY ambitious undertaking. I had no idea. All the people, all the jewels, all the fabric, even the background details. I thought I was almost done and then it took two more weeks. Well, I hope it was worth it. I'm still not sure! It's also hard to see in this small of a view with all the details.
On a side note, sadly, they are changing the format of the UVU forum on Children's Literature this year. So I am sad to report that I will no longer be speaking on the panel on March 15. But I will still be speaking at the Ogden Pallet Club this coming Tuesday, March 9th (see post below for more details). Better get started on preparing what I am going to talk about! :/
