Illustration Friday: Celebrate- 100th Post!

This is a late post, and I'd still like to finish coloring it, but I thought it was too perfect that it was my 100th post, and I wanted to celebrate along with the IF topic since most of the posts here have been created for Illustration Friday. So woohoo 100!!!

I came back from the SCBWI conference inspired and energized, but my head is so packed with information that it's left me a bit unsure of which way to go, and ended up making my mind short circuit and go blank temporarily. I heard a lot about what to do and what not to do, (see previous post), but I'm still uncertain of where to take my style. I think the conclusion I come to is that the only direction to go is forward, and to let my style to continue to evolve naturally, however that may be. The fun thing for me with these IF topics is never knowing what might end up on my sketchbook page. So, I need to turn off that part of my brain that likes to over think everything, and let the creative process do it's thing.

Hey Angela, Please forgive me for not getting back to you sooner! Congrats on your 100th post!!!!! You should be so happy and proud of yourself you did it! YOU DI IT!!!! I know of a whole lot of blogs that start off great and then just get left or kick to the curb because it is work to keep a blog going! I'm proud of you. I can't wait to see this baby all colored and everything! It looks great. I adore the characters I want to go to this celebration for sure!
