Sunday Sketches



Welcome to another week of Sunday Sketches.  The last few days have been quite productive and for that I'm quite thankful. Previously I mentioned this year was going to be one of changes, therefore I've started taking a few steps forward over the last week or so, but especially the past few days to get a few more things rolling.  When certain things are more concrete, I'll be sure to shout it out here.  :)

In the meantime, let me share some exciting news received just a week or so ago.  Over the next few months I'll be creating around 10 illustrations (in B. Potter style no less) for an upcoming children's book that will teach youngsters about Math.  I'm delighted to have this opportunity and wanted to provide a sneak peak of one idea put to paper just a few hours ago.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to visit everyone else.  Happy SS!

  1. That's so exciting Sophia!!! I'm sure you'll have a blast illustrating them.

    And as a quick-quicky (not a phrase but I can have my fantasies right?=), Thank you so much for hosting Sunday Sketches - it's so inspiring for a starter out like me to have a sort of community to gather and spread encouragement. Much love - L
