Hi Kelly! I know and adore your work! I am with Shannon as well and every time I see your images there I think that you are one of the best illustrators ever. I work more on young adult's books. May I invite you as a friend? :)

Kelly, can you recommend to me any Mons. grads or students who could capably draw in a realistic line drawing style?
Comment by Martha Stroud on 6/28/2008 at 11:09 PM:
Wow! I am just in awe of your illustrations, Kelly. Atmospheric is the perfect word to describe them. There's something kind of Gorey-esqe about your people, but they have a beauty and ... what?... a sadness? ... that Gorey didn't have. Very poignant and moving. I love them!
Comment by aaron pocock on 5/18/2008 at 5:05 PM:
Beautiful art Kelly, Congratulations!
All the best, Aaron
Comment by Mechelle Avey on 4/27/2008 at 9:41 AM:
