This past semester I took a children's book illustration course... I worked with a manuscript called Sophie's Masterpiece, by Eileen Spinelli. It's a bittersweet story about a kindly house spider who tries to use her weaving to help people. I originally planned on working purely digital, but after some persuading from my teacher I decided to use pencil for the first time in a few years... It was a challenge, but I really enjoyed it.
