1. WINGS - Sphinx Moth

 "Sphinx Moth" 
colored pencils on Strathmore paper
© Paula Pertile

I was inspired to do an illustration of this moth after one started visiting my jasmine in the evenings. I thought it was a hummingbird, its so HUGE! It starts out as one of those scary horned caterpillar worms. I never knew they turned into such glorious creatures. Nature is amazing!

4. WINGS for April!

If You Love Honey by Martha Sullivan, illustrated by Cathy Morrison
April's theme word is WINGS, so here's some blue jays to welcome spring. This is a spread from If You Love Honey, by Martha Sullivan, published by Dawn Publications and illustrated by me, Cathy Morrison. It's the second book I've illustrated for Martha and I'm a huge fan of her writing. It seems like kids like her as well.

This is set to come out September 2015. Thanks for taking a look!

9. Buzzing about Valentines

"If You Love Honey, Nature's Connections" written by Martha Sullivan and illustrated by Cathy Morrison
OK, let me explain… This month's theme is Valentine and this image has nothing to do with Valentine. But this is an illustration for If You Love Honey, Nature's Connections. So I'm connecting Valentine with Love and that's why I'm posting this image.

And I just posted new images from this book on my own blog if you'd like to see more.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

13. Home is where the heart is...

Houses don't come in one shape or size. The mole lives underground, the seal lives in the ocean and the  deer and fox live in the meadow. 

These are illustrations from Pitter and Patter written by Martha Sullivan, published by Dawn Publishing and illustrated by me, Cathy Morrison. It's one of their new spring releases. 

Welcome Home and Happy Spring!

14. House of the Bishop

House of the Bishop by Ellen Beier, from Les Miserables
     In this image, Jean Valjean returns to the house of the Bishop: from the (abridged) text: “What a wretch I am!” he exclaimed, and he burst into tears for the first time in 19 years. Valjean realized that he had to change. When the church clock chimed three on that morning, he was kneeling in prayer at the bishop’s door.

21. Night Landscape

Click on image for larger view
This landscape scene is from Sunny Bunnies which was originally published a few years ago but it is a 'landscape' image I am still fond of. I particularly like the night-time blues, and the friendly lights of the car making its way home through Carrot Cake Park.

Materials: Dip-pen ink outlines on watercolour paper, coloured with watercolour paints and coloured pencils.

23. LANDSCAPE - Ginger Cookie Arch



This is pushing the idea of 'landscape' a bit, but technically it fits. I tried to make these cookies look like an old ruined arch, out in some bleak landscape. And . . . clouds!

24. Landscape: The streets of Tokyo

Here's something to fit the landscape theme, or city scape in this case. You can tell it's an old picture as Tokyo Metro underground changed their logo many years ago!

25. Manatee Mom & Calf

This remains one of my all time favorite illustrations.  Not so much for the technical aspect but I feel I captured the love of mother and calf when they are reunited in the story.  I love illustrations, by any artist, that go beyond the words and capture the feeling.
