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.
