Personal Work as a Means to A Better Portfolio

I have been inspired by a blog post by Amy June Bates (one of my most favorite illustrators!!!) to take up my big ol’ book of collected Children’s stories and just illustrate from these as a personal project.  Updating my website with personal paintings I think adds flavor, adds fun, and definitely can help show off some skill!  I can pretend I am “on assignment” to illustrate my favorite rhymes and stories… ;)
Meanwhile, my favorite client, Fadenrot, has contacted me to do some fairy tale based illustrations as well!
