Lellie, Lellie!

Mommy

You can now order “Lellie The Different Elephant” a book written by Lois Ann Garza. I illustrated the book with colored pencils. These pieces were the last done with this medium. For the brighter pieces, I used inks to create an under-painting.

I got my copies this week so here I am sharing some pictures with you.

Some sketches and illustrations from the book that you may have seen if you visited my previous website. I thought I would include them here since pretty soon I will be removing all colored pencil pieces from my portfolio area.

And these are my table and studio while working on Lellie.
Q – Was it always this organized and clean, Juana?
A – I’m afraid so and that’s why I love working on my mixed media. Me happy when a little bit messy.
