Jam and Jelly: Recent Kidlit Illustrations



Although I've considered my comic work to be primarily all ages or kid-lit, it wasn't until last fall that I started creating work specifically to cater to kidlit and children's book illustration.

For me, this means a significant style shift away from the watercolor comic pages of 7" Kara, which means generating a new body of work, both traditional and digital.  This results in multiple bodies of work that don't quite seem to correspond or serve one another.  Since I'm looking for additional paying freelance work to help pay the bills, this means working double time to fill the new portfolios.
