Free July 2011 Desktop calendar

Hi Everyone,
 It's that time of month again- FREE desktop calendar time!! Yippeee :) I don't know about you but I just love checking out all the amazing desktop calendars created by so many great illustrators each month. I have a hard time picking and often put different ones up weekly, so I can admire and get inspiration from all my favorites. A few other links to check out for desktop calendars are Jonathan Woodward (click up top on free stuff), We love to illustrate for children group blog,  and Geninne Zlatkis .
Remember to click on your screen resolution link listed below the image then right click and click on "set to background".
I hope you all enjoy this desktop calendar and it reminds you of how fun it is to play with friends and be silly sometimes. :)

Fun in the mud!

Here is the latest plasticine illustration I have been working on over the past few weeks. I thought it would be fun to do a bunch of silly farm animals taking turns jumping in the mud in the pig's pen. Those crazy animals! The textures were fun to play with, expecially the mud! I hope I didn't give my kiddos any ideas- ekk! ;)
Below are some close-ups of the jumping sheep and my mocking rooster. Enjoy!

First Edition of the Zero2illo zine is here!!

I am so excited to share with you that the very first edition of the Zero2illo Zine is available now! If you haven't yet signed up for your subscription then go and subscribe now!!   I am so very honoured to have been one of the lucky illustrators chosen to be featured in the gallery section of this first edition! I submitted my "Teepee Granny" illustration above.
 This new venture put forth by the very talented Jonathan Woodward, and his equally talented wife Lea Woodward  is fantastic example of how to bring together a great bundle of illustration resources such as website analysis, in depth interviews, illustration business tips, and a gallery section with great artwork from both established and emerging illustrators, all rolled up into a cohesive and gorgeously designed e-zine. Brilliant!
Jonathan also contributed a wonderful process piece of the creation of his majestic eagle illustration that he submitted for the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year Competition. I so love seeing other artist processes and methods, and this one did not disappoint! I really must try collage soon! I have it on my "to-do" list.
They are currently accepting submissions until July 31st for the next issue due out in Sept. so do visit zero2illo for more information on how to  subscribe and definitely submit some of your illustrations! The zine will also be sent to select Art Directors as well as subscribers.
So go, go now and check it out!!! You know you want to....;)
