BLIN's Journey - Illustration created for Tomie dePaola Award

I'm excited to show the piece I created for the SCBWI Tomie dePaola Award.  I was one of fifteen artists chosen as a semi-finalist.  For our final piece we were given a piece of text and told to illustrate it however we would like.  The text was very open-ended.

Below I show my process.
I started by brainstorming different compositions.


Then I refined the composition I chose.


After that I did a few color studies.

I blocked in  the basic shapes.

I added the details and text.

Finally, I added textures to the different objects.  Finished!

Tomie is going to announce the winner later this month.  I'm really pleased with my piece and hope he picks me!
