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:
