Fun in the Sea~New Artwork!

For Make Art That Sells last month we had a nautical theme! Well as you know I love children's art, so that is what I did. Here are my four pieces, which are now available to buy from me as well via my website.!prints/c1qno Thanks for swinging by! What would you draw if you had this assignment? I'd love to hear! Cheers and have a super, super, day!

Uli Driscoll in Trouble-My Early Chapter Book Series

Hey everyone!! So I haven't blogged in awhile--not my usual. Why? You ask. Well because I was finishing my EARLY CHAPTER BOOK, yes I illustrated it and wrote it. I had a couple requests to submit directly to editors, so I wanted to get the dummy finished. A dummy is a sample that artist/illustrators do to show the book to prospective agents, editors and art directors. While some may do a rough book dummy, I did mine in full color. I am happy to make revisions, but I am super happy with how it turned out! Here are some photos, and actually some of the text has already changed since I made the watermarked images below. :) Wish  me luck!! I have worked really hard on this series and I am hoping to sell it to a major this year.

My EARLY Chapter Book Is Finished--Well the Dummy!

So excited that I completed the illustrations for my early chapter book-Uli Driscoll in Trouble. I made a dummy to send to a published and one for the summer conference. Even though I colored all the pages, I am of course open to changes. This is in fact a DUMMY. :) Here is a sneak! IMAGES MAY NOT BE COPIED OR REPRODUCED-COPYRIGHT Stephanie Olivieri 2014
