Look what Mark made me...

This is the display that Mark made for my Jingle Bulbs. I had them on a white tree which got some wear and tear. So when Mark came with this idea and I was all over it. The Believe came from Joanns, I think it is perfect to break up the lines of the display.

This is a piece that I did for Highlights Lets Play Hidden Picture program. This program is wrapping up and I feel a bit sad about it. I will miss the regular fun work and working with the art director, who is so fun to work with.

I learned so much with this project. 

The first thing I learned that as an illustrator, when you hear that a company is looking for artists you need to follow up, send your work and then if you don't hear anything back, keep pursuing. Art directors are very busy.

I also learned how to send my art digitally, a wonderful thing. Ok. this really dates me, but oh well I used to be computer behind but no longer.

And because of Highlights, I look at the world in a Hidden Picture kind of way.

So, now off to new projects, hopefully with Highlights and many other companies.

Being an illustrator is a wonderful thing to be.
