Kingfisher


I have a book that teaches you how to paint with a Sumi brush. One of the lessons was painting with milk so I gave it a try. It can add some very interesting textures and I used it on this kingfisher bird painting. I like some of the effects and I will keep experimenting with it!

Internship

Hey everyone!

I've started interning for a childrens' toy company called Thinkativity. They make toys that help kids learn about reading, numbers and all of those kinds of things. I help with design issues on the toys and do inhouse illustrations. I've always wanted to work for toys and it's exciting to learn the whole process. I didn't even think about the need to hire voice actors for toys! I really like everyone at the company and i can't wait to work on new toy concepts!
