Snowy Snake Secrets

Sunday, December 7, 2008

Have you seen your first snowfall of the year yet? Ours was the Sunday after Thanksgiving, and it is snowing lightly right now. First snows always feel special, don't they? Even for me, a "seasoned" New Englander. It always makes things a tiny bit enchanting (won't be saying that in March!)

I'm busy on projects over here, so I thought I'd post a sneak of the character concept painting I did of the slithery hero and spunky heroine from my new early-reader title for Scholastic (click on her to enlarge) It's top secret for now...hope you are warm and cozy and enjoying the season where you are <3

NICE Julia! I saw snow for the first time this season last night -- yay :)
Good luck with your project!

No snow out here yet. I'm having trouble believing that it's almost Christmas because of it.

Also, I'm completely creeped out by the snake. Gives me the shivers!

I love your drawings soooooo much!! Is that paint and pencil, or also some computer stuff too?

Her hair and clothes look so good. I like her (your) style :)

Hey Julia! I just found your blog through Eric Orchard's blog. Your illustrations are really fantastic!

I'm a little annoyed to see that your name doesn't seem to appear on the cover of My Little Girl. But congrats on a nicely illustrated book, nonetheless.
