Whatcha Workin’ With?

Whatcha Workin’ With?

Since I’m just beginning this journey of being an illustrator I’m trying to get my hands on as many mediums as possible to see what I like working with the best. Mediums I’ve played with include:

  • Pen & Ink
  • Gouache (which is an opaque watercolor paint)
  • Colored Pencil
  • Pastel
  • Graphite

Aaaaaaaaaannnnnd, drum roll, please!

  • Watercolor Pencils!

I am so excited to announce that I received a set of watercolor pencils for Christmas this year and can’t wait to see what I can do with them! I’m not a painter, by any means, but I know how to use a pencil and I absolutely love the look of watercolor artwork in Children’s books, so this seemed like the perfect choice!

I still love working with Pen & Ink ( and I have a piece I’m working on that I’ll be posting soon,) but I will definitely be adding more color to my artwork now!

Find time everyday to practice what you love. If it’s drawing, draw; if it’s running, run; if it’s underwater-basket weaving, then get to weaving!
