I don't know what I'll end up doing with this newfound skill. For now, I'm going to keep taking classes. This fall, I've been learning how to draw with pastels. I love the richness of color I get with them.
I plan to take a class in cartooning and illustration. And who knows? Maybe one day I will illustrate one of my picture books.
The Joy of Drawing: A Wonderful New Discovery
In the last year, I've taken drawing classes at my local Y, and I've discovered that I love it! And I actually have some talent I didn't realize I had.
I really shouldn't have been surprised because my identical twin sister Pamela Hobbs is a Chicago artist, who makes beautiful, moody hand-colored photographs.
Children's writer, journalist
Words are magical things, aren't they? Read an adventure story and suddenly you're in a forest searching for hidden treasure. Or pick up a sad, sweet story and before long, your eyes are tearing up and you've made a new friend. Books make you feel and books teach you things. As a writer, I love to bring children new worlds through words. Here is my blog, where I review new picture books you might enjoy.
