Fall Back into ART!

Wow! Summer seemed to just fly by. With my daughter home from school we had a great time playing, traveling, and relaxing.  I'm so excited for the fall, however, and all of the new things that are happening...


Labor Day weekend I kicked off a series of Illustration workshops being offered at The Fox River Academy of Music and Art.  We started with a basic Character Design workshop where the students learned how to create a character using basic visual storytelling techniques.  Since it was the first workshop I allowed the kids to work in any style they were comfortable with and let them design any character they wanted.  We ended up with some tough Manga/Anime girls and a nomadic canine. These kids did great! In future workshops we will focus on many different genres in the Character Design world, as well as doing some Creature Design, Children's Book Illustration, and Decorative/Greeting Card Artwork. Check out this great list of workshops in The Academy's most recent newsletter. 



I have also been continuing work on my children's art line of prints. In addition to selling my work on my website I have also opened a new Keller Kiddo Designs ETSY shop. For my grande opening I'm offering FREE SHIPPING for the next two months**!!  Use the code FALLBACK to get the discount!


I have also recently finished a new piece within my "Jungle Fun" collection featuring this adorable baby elephant and a little bird friend.


Keep checking back for new work in this line and other news. Enjoy this upcoming season of pumpkin spice and chunky sweaters.... I know I will!
