13. The ABC's of Cancer "According to Lilly Isabella Lane" Illustrator Dawn Phillips Sketch for the Letter B

Illustrator Dawn Phillips would like to share another project she has been sketching in between the Halloween Book Series. The ABC's of Cancer "According to Lilly Isabella Lane" byTerri Forehand. She would like to share letter "B". 

B is for bald. Bald is beautiful, and you don’t get tangles. The treatment for my leukemia makes my hair fall out in clumps and patches. I asked my dad to shave my head bald...now no tangles. (He shaved his head, too, so he could look like me.)

19. DAY 54 - Continuation to Day 53 Tour with Illustrator Dawn Phillips



Relating to Illustrating? Most ideas come from memories and occurrences.

"Hat Occasions" children story has a page where a little girl is feeding Farm Animals. How else will these animals behave? Like Children.

You'll find a Goat who feels he should no longer be feed by a bottle, Chicken who's a picky eater, One Egg who doesn't want to be the little girls meal, and finally the rabbit an innocent observer or is he just taking a mental note for ideas.

I hope you enjoy a good laugh.

20. Day 53 Pet Ducks +Spoiled = Act like Kids.

First Snow for Iowa in 2011, Photo by Roy O Phillips


How does this relate to illustrating? First, let me explain the story behind why Ducks act like kids. Never had pet ducks, Quakers (white duck) and Daffy (mallard), before but got attached thanks to my son. Yesterday, Quakers was getting feed and played with and Daffy decided to grab he's neck with his beck. So, he got gently smacked and he turned and grabbed my hair. But, then Quakers came to my defense and grabbed his tail. Finally, it came down to me grabbing Daffy's beck and scolding him for biting. Like a kid, he ran around in circles quacking (complaining) and ran to his kennel (bedroom) to pout.

Now, to find out the answer to how this relates to illustrating follow me into Day 54.

DAY 56- How many different Swim Strokes can you name?

While sketching illustrations for "The Pool is Cool Series" it brought back memories of Swim Lessons and Life Guard Training in Girl Scouts but it was eons ago. Honestly, I was only able to name two (Butterfly and Breast Stroke).

Were you able to guess all of these Swim Strokes?
Crawl
Butterfly
Breast Stroke
Sculling

25. DAY 58 - Do you have Swimmers Ear? You must have heard of the New Book Release for 2012.


Here's a glimpse of the Cover Design for the upcoming 2012 Picture Book.

Author Dana Evans, who's a Swimming Instructor,  intends to release a series of books which relate to Swimming Lessons.

All of the illustrations for the book are done with Digital Oil Pastels. The medium blends so beautifully to create a smooth wave of colorful blues. 

The Little Boy captures how proud he is of learning to Swim.
