Why do I do this... why do I illustrate? And why do you?
For me, Illustration isn't just an occupation. It is my passion. This is what I do because the characters that are living in my thoughts and dreams are begging to be noticed. The desire to draw, to paint, to write and to create art in any form gets me up and ready to start each day with a new idea.
I try to tell a little story in each illustration.
To investigate new ways to show these ideas in my artowrk I study nature, people, animals, books, and the artwork of many others who have inspired me through their work and dedication to that very special art form called the Picture Book.
But what about you? You are illustrators by the hundreds, and designers, and crafters. Are you in this because you love the process, the outcome...the journey?
Let others hear from you .... WHY?
