IF: Craving


Little Tim Tin was surprised by a bunch of slimy little aliens when he went to the fridge to satisfy a midnight craving.

This week I'm only posting a sketch. I liked how it came out and I'd like to add color to it if I ever get the chance. I've been thinking a lot about my portfolio and realize that I don't have a lot of different subjects. Lots of children, but not a lot of other stuff. I'm not sure if this is portfolio worthy, but I think in terms of subject I'm definitely moving in the right direction.

I'm trying to wrap up the dummy book while the family has been fighting a virus. Hopefully, I'll have it all done by next week. Yay! I may post the cover separately, just to get feedback.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for all your comments...

E, This is so cute and I love that you are inviting new characters into your art. Great style and it is strong in black and white!
Your book dummy is looking fantastic! What is your medium? Are you doing this digitaly? It truly looks amazing. I wish I had mine done this far. I eagerly await the finished product!
Have a great weekend!

So Cute! Love your designs at your website, too! I used to be a graphic designer, too! Well, I guess I still am...just haven't done any of that since doing kids books, etc.

Wonderful narrative - a picture that's worth a thousand words. Re-post when you get the color added.
