Here is the pencil rough for a new painting I'm working on. I want to get my portfolio up to about twelve pieces and I want to have more well known stories illustrated in my work. I've taken a while to decide in what direction I want my portfolio to take. I had to look at my work and think about what kind of work represented me most. So, I'm working on my portfolio and at the same time working in the Josephine Pebbles story. I'm up to a second draft on the Pebbles story. For my next painting I'llbe doing a scene from Jack And The Beanstock. I'd really like to illustrate more African folk tales. Does anyone know some really great ones?
