I’ve been playing with this sketch of Goldie & Bear. I originally did this image in color below:
Tea with Bear and Friends Final
I was looking to do a b&w image in a similar style. So here is my sketch:
So playing with it I was really enjoying what was happening in this piece, so I posted this as a beginning:
Here is my final image with adjustments.
I think I need to do a bunch more like this image. I am loving it! I didn’t want to stop painting! Hope you love it too. Enjoy!
Milton Mallard is complete. Enjoy the process. Maybe he will become more of a character at some point. He was fun to play with.

Here is a new image I’ve been working on. When I first sketched it, (see below) I had much less going on but after listening to Will Terry’s February Third Thursday about adding more to your illustrations, it changed everything and for the better. It’s not #draw50things but #draw25things can work for this one. My next image will be #draw50things and now I see him talking about perspective, so maybe I will add that too. Would love to hear your thoughts? Let me know what you think. #kidlit #shannonassociates #draw50things #draw25things #willterry
I’ve always felt that the best gift of all is a gift created with love. Every year my kids make their teachers a little something for the holidays. Every year it is loved! Take a look at their creations this year..Enjoy!
