Well, he's not a very smart mouse.

Ah, Children's book illustration... not exactly the direction I see myself going. But Nancy Carlson, one of my childhood heroes, is actually teaching the Children's book class at MCAD this semester, and I thought it sounded like a great opportunity.

Anyway, the current project was all about imagination. I suppose my image isn't imaginative in a very STRONG way... I'm not into fantasy or anything like that. But I thought a mouse jumping into a shoe would suffice.

Here's the image colored in Photoshop. This is not a way I typically work... but I maybe kinda liked it.

And by the way, you can totally tell I've been watching way too much of The Simpsons lately.

Man! The color on this illustration looks great with the green background of your blog!

I love it Jen! I like the colors too, they work really well.
