Visit Koo & Poppet!

Sarah's having a lovely give-away on one of her sweet bears. I hope you all visit her lovely blog and check out her contest. http://kooandpoppet.blogspot.com

Good luck everyone! And THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU so very much for all of your wonderful comments to date. You are all helping me in my quest (becoming a children's book illustrator)...I'm very happy that you have taken your time to stop by and comment...I truly appreciate it. 

All is beautiful in sunny California right now - hope everyone's having a wonderful summer so far!

PS - Thank you all for also contributing to my poll at right - this is very helpful. I'll have more polls coming in the future. : )


  1. You have a good time, Ms. Shirley!

    Love you much!

  2. Thanks so much for your nice comments on my illustration friday art. I've since finished the color version you can see it here... http://purposeonpaper.blogspot.com/

    As for your work, I am very impressed and think your work is very good. A few years ago when I first started doing illustration, I read a really great article by a children's illustrator named Holli Conger. She basically detailed everything she did to get her career in motion, and now she is very successful at it. Although I'm not a children's illustrator a lot of her advice worked for me too. Here's a link to what she wrote and her website.


    Hopefully this helps you like it did for me. Keep up the great work!

  3. Hi Shirley!
    thanks for the mention in this post :)

    p.s. I got your email and I will set aside some time this weekend to get back to you.


Feedback! You rock! Thanks for your words...
