Magic Carpet Ride by Hazel Mitchell

Early August is the SCBWI Summer Conference in LA. Every year there is a portfolio showcase and this year I will be entering a portfolio on the theme of 'flying'.

I have taken different scenarios and created an image for example: fairies, ladybugs, superhero cat, a boy constructing a model plane.

This is my second year at the Los Angeles conference and I am very much looking forward to spending time with other illustrators and writers, to say nothing of the fantastic faculty this year. These gatherings give a tremendous boost and really get the juices flowing!

Attending the conference this year will be Sheralyn Barnes and Debbie Ohi, fellow Pixel Shavers, so it will be quite a reunion given that we live in far flung areas of North America.

Here is the Magic Carpet Ride image - 2 versions, one colour and the other with grayscale washes. Both are created with graphite and finished in photoshop.

Thanks for dropping by Pixel Shavings ... next week there will be something yummy from ace illustrator Russ Cox.
