Project Update & Giveaway! :D

Working on a lot of artwork! These are some concept/warm up sketches. :)

Miki has this weird way of looking like a totally different little girl from one drawing to the next... while still being very much herself.

The colored one is actually done with watercolor FIRST and then some pencil and ink lines to make it easier to see. I am considering working with watercolors (for the ballet book at least) if I can improve quickly in how I work with them! Otherwise: crayons. Who doesn't love crayons? (And why?!)

I am also here to announce the first opportunity to help with the creative side of the book making process AND to win something pretty cool!

I am going to need some other dancers for Miki's ballet class! I have a few other characters, but I would love to have a little more variation between who is in her ballet class and who is in her school class. As such, I open the floor to YOU!

Describe, briefly, an eight year old (boy or girl!) to be a dancer. It can be a real person or one you make up. I will choose two to be in the book! If yours gets chosen I will send you one of the two ballet "I Can Read" books that I grew up with: "All Tutus Should Be Pink" or "The Baseball Ballerina." Just send your suggestions to  (Sir's email address) or in the comments below! (Just be sure to leave YOUR email address!)  Runner ups may get something too, we'll see. :)

Thank you for your help!

P.S. Don't forget to check out the Kickstarter!

You can ask the characters questions as well as Colleen. Just put the character name in parentheses or something so I know who should respond!
