I wanted to post this link to Holli Conger's blog. Every day in the month of December she posted an illustration tip. Just scroll down a bit on her blog to see them. I'm printing them out for future reference myself. Great stuff!
I adore children’s illustration and spend my time drawing and painting. I especially enjoy creating characters. After a bit of sketching they seem to take on a life of their own and are kind enough to let me get to know them.
