Inspired by Vera B. Williams "Something Special For Me"
I was inspired by a SCBWI post that talked about the power of words and how illustrations compliment the text. There were partial texts from several very well known books referenced in the article and I was inspired to try my hand at illustrating one of the texts. The text I selected was from "Something Special For Me" written and illustrated by Vera B. Williams. I chose this text because when my oldest was little, I read another of her books, "A Chair for My Mother" to her frequently. It was a well loved book. This illustration was done in gouache on Arches 140# hot press.
