This is it. Stories for Children Magazine has officially printed its last issue. Ouch. I feel so lost. These guys were my life-line. I was getting an art assignment a month from them and now I feel set adrift.
My last assignment was an illustration of a girl playing volleyball for a youth poem. You can see it posted on my blog.
I will miss the challenge of having a new story, article or poem to inspire me.
So what do I do, now that I no longer have SFC? I do have an illustrated picture book that has been on the back burner waiting to be finished. Perhaps now is the time to dust it off and see what I can do with it. I have posted a sketch from one of the pages on my blog above the volleyball picture. What do you think? Watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil? What medium would you use, and would you make any changes?
