Very cool--especially like your animals/nature drawings. I'd love to see what you would do with a children's book. Don't know if you are looking for resources... maybe you know about these already, but SCBWI (Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) is a good resource. There are regional groups that organize conferences & other events in a lot of places throughout the world, and there's an online forum... though the forum doesn't match the quality of the organization as a whole. Verla Kay's Blueboards is the best online forum; it's a wonderful place to connect with other kid lit illustrators and authors, both published and not-yet-published. :)

No. lol I haven't even done a children's book. Ive been freelancing for 20 years and I'm stuck in a bit of a rut. Lots of skull stuff. That's what people see, so those are the clients I attract. I am trying to build up some more illustrations that pertain to a more kid-friendly clientele.

Here's my on-line portfolio. I haven't updated it in a couple of weeks. I usually do it every week or so, since I'm actually pretty busy with clients. I guess that's why I haven't had much time to get some other types of illustrations done.

Graeme Base is awesome! My kids are in their 20s now (well, the baby is 19) but when they were little they all loved Animalia. Is your style similar to his?

It's a correspondence course through Stratford. I was interested in doing this because I am actually an illustrator and I just LOVE kids books. My favourite writer/illustrator is Graeme Base

Yes, Fit_Artist, I write for kids 8 - 12, mostly. I have a science article about invisibility in this month's Spider Magazine. Are you taking the ICL course?

Do you write children's books? I am currently taking a Creative Children's writing course.

Hi team, I'm Storycrafter. I've been lurking here for a little while, and am looking forward to getting to know people on this team. I reached my goal weight a few weeks ago, and I'm trying to learn how to eat healthily for my body without the structure of a diet plan. Yikes... too much freedom! I'd love to have some sparkbuddies who are committed to healthy eating... please feel free to visit my sparkpage and/or add me as a sparkfriend.
