I'm taking a fabulous children's book illustration course right now. It's from mega-agent Lilla Rogers and superstar children's book editor Zoe Tucker. I'm kind of in heaven. It's called MATS (Make Art That Sells), and teaches you pretty much anything you'd ever want to know about kids' books.
Here are some examples of the work we're doing. We receive a weekly "mini"...a small assignment leading up to a weekly "major" assignment. Then, we also get a daily sketchbook prompt. I'm trying to experiment and have fun playing with the sketchbook assignments. For the sketchbook in particular, I'm experimenting with a lot of different styles and mediums.
(Note: I was really excited that Lilla Rogers shared my glasses sketch on her Instagram for Make Art That Sells!)
