Creepy Crawlers and Tiny Creatures with Wings on the Brain
My love for creepy crawlers and tiny creatures with wings goes way back a long time ago when I was kid. I have always been fascinated by the unique colorful pattern and texture of most insects have on their corpse. I have studied and admire bugs for many years as a hobby.
The career as a medical or natural science illustrator never came to mind, until recently. I have no plans on returning back to school at this time, so I am going to go by faith that my talent and passion alone will get my art work noticed.
Over the next few weeks, I will be drawing and painting natural science images for my portfolio. My goal for this type of illustration is to create beautiful artwork for children’s non-fiction books that specialize in entomology. I also have plans to become a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrator in the near future. I am so excited about writing and illustrating for both non-fiction and fiction picture books for children.
