Hi Kate, I am impressed by your sketch of the mushroom thief. While the poem was good too, it’s really the sketches that caught my fancy. I wonder if an illustration format rather than poems is an option?

Wanted to share the new silly rhyme I wrote today! :) Check out other stories and rhymes on my blog (pinkpurplerainbow.wordpress.com).

The little brown snail

Had a little red pail,

And wherever he went

He would leave a wet trail.

Every day he would scale

Garden walls of Ms.Dale

With his little red pail

And would eat all the kale.

But the gale brought the hail,

So the little brown snail

Stuffed his cheeks full of kale

And hid under the pail.

And this is a true tale

Of a little brown snail

With his little red pail

Full of tasty green kale.

Here’s the first glimpse at the future cover art! If anyone is following my little project, please let me know what you think! Thank you!

So, I’ve been working on another children’s story this past week. Yup, I was changing Ellie’s nappie and telling her a story and... It kind of poured out of me :) So had to sit down and write it as soon as Ellie-pumpkin fell asleep. 

It’s called Ellie and the Mushroom Thief. You can read it on Smashwords or on my blog for free.

I’ve also been thinking about making a children’s story collection about dragons (have another story in mind, have to find some spare time to sit down and write it).

Here are the illustrations for Ellie and the Mushroom Thief. As a wise person said, practice makes perfect! Sketch, sketch, sketch! 
P.S. seriously considering to buy a tablet for drawing and try photoshop or illustrator.

Tody I’ve bought the tools every artist needs - a sketchpad and new pencils!

And here are some first sketches!
