From a narrative life drawing session at Nick: I used the time to try out a Blackwing pencil I'd picked up recently. I've heard alot about them but never used one before. Graphite pencils in general have never been my favorite to draw with mostly because I dislike the shiny glare they tend to leave behind-but the Blackwing was nice and I enjoyed the smoothness (it seemed smoother than the tombow), that removable eraser is pretty nifty too.

Happy New Year! I can't believe 2013 is over already.
To kick things off The Year of the Horse is now available and Hannah the spunky foal is eager for adventure in 2014. I had alot of fun illustrating this book- it didn't hurt that it stars one of my favorite animals ; ) I especially enjoyed drawing Hannah. I'm currently working on a feltie of her which will hopefully be finished in time to accompany me to the reading events I'll be doing in the next few weeks. Below are some early character studies of Hannah the horse and her pal Tom. And please head over to the Immedium website for more info on the book (click the cover above) and for a list of upcoming book events click here. Thanks and I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!
Hannah's best friend Tom (early studies).
I gave him a jockey red cap to carry on the equestrian theme:
