Here I have finally arrived through the tech jungle to meet you all with some illustrations. I’m starting off with some sketch book work. Although I did some comics for my high school and college papers, I studied realism in my BA, and I’ve made abstract mixed media paintings for 12 years. I took a few years off to get my MFA in writing for children,so yes, I’ve forgotten how to draw with my imagination. Here is one of my first attempts. I’m following it up with another lady bug in a process more familiar to me and I’m working forward to a snail next– at a slow pace 🙂 My most difficult thing in illustrating: how to slow down to get action and story in the composition before I get to my favorite part– layers of colors. My website is www.pollymcann.com. Happy early spring in KC.
