Hi, I'm Glad To Be Here!



Hi everyone, just wanted to introduce myself!  I'm Susan Mordigal, and just joined Monday Artday. I've had a blast with Illustration Friday, and decided I needed even more challenges and to meet even more artists!  I hope it's OK to post outside the theme, maybe like Andrew I can catagorize it under "No challenge week" from the other week?  I love the challenge, "Invisible" and I'm working on a piece for it right now, hopefully it'll be ready by the weekend. I haven't had a chance to even consider the new "insanity" challenge, but I'm sure it'll be all too easy to relate to!  I am mainly a colored pencil artist who focuses on children's themes. The piece above I finished last week and is of my beagle mix Cosmo.  I am in the process of writing and illustrating a picture book about him and this is part of my studies of drawing him in different poses, light, etc. I am also a member of SCBWI and will be attending local meetings soon, but if anyone has any input or insight I'm more than welcome to it, thanks!
