Posts from the Draw This! Category

There were all sorts of wonderful submissions for last month’s Draw This! prompt. My favorite takes were by Sanne Dufft, Julie Rowan-Zoch, and Patricia Kresiser.

April’s prompt word is “Surprise.” Here’s my submission:

This illustration is 7″ across by 7″ high, and roughly 5″ along each of the edges. For this collage, I simply slipped the fries into the packaging instead of gluing them down, which makes for some hidden surprises when you peek inside.

 

After a year-and-ten-month hiatus spent with words, I limbered up my rusty fingers for Draw This, a new illustrator feature from SCBWI. The prompt word for June 2015 is “Bounce.” Of course, I settled on a jackalope.

He’s a little guy, about two inches long, on a background four inches across by four inches high. This collage was cut mostly from landscape textures found within John James Audubon prints and fastened with good, old-fashioned Elmer’s Glue.

Eventually, there will be an online gallery with all of the entries. For the time being, I’ve enjoyed seeing my fellow illustrators’ submissions on Twitter at #scbwidrawthis. Bounce by and have a look!
