A "Highlight" for me!

Hi Everyone! I hope you're enjoying July so far. I wanted to share a recent package I received of a project that I am so happy to have had the opportunity to work on. Thank you to Bernadette Szost, my agent the time, who connected me to the wonderful folks at Highlights Magazine. This piece was so much fun to illustrate..I even had the chance to add the little pup whom we call "Pippy", who is a nod to my youngest's favorite stuffed animal. It's always fun when you can add a little something personal to a piece. If you've followed this blog, you'll have seen and heard of my journey on this illustration career. It's something I've been focusing on for 4-5 years now, after working in Graphic Design (which I still do)..so for me, to be able to work on a Highlights project is truly a wonderful thing. I am grateful for such a great opportunity and I wanted to share with you my joy. :)

It's been a busy summer so far..now with my littlest at camp, I'm settling back into my work-week, and trying my best to enjoy the sun and outdoors before the heat hits in the late afternoon. Our dog is sure loving our morning walks too. Here's to a great rest of the week for all of you and thanks so much for stopping by here, it means a lot!
