Kid, Goats, Pigs: Kids' Illustration work

A little show 'n tell!
This work is from personal references. (I can turn any kind of outing into a quest for illustration reference materials.)

First in pencil:

Another version in gouache:

This is a fast gouache that I went back in and touched up with pencil:

We named these piggies Pretty & Gorgeous!

It's good to be back at the drawing board. Now I need to work on some sketches for a picture book I wrote. And revisions to the text.


  1. My favorite is Pretty & Gorgeous! they're so cute! :)

  2. Thanks, Jennifer! Maybe you can... drawing is seeing. Sometimes it just takes the right teacher!

  3. Those pigs are beautiful. I love the earthy, painterly style here.
