My tribute to picture books: Why Picture Books Are Important

Welcome! I'm using Monsters, Tea and Art Licensing to record some of the useful art licensing resources and info I've found. My background: children's book illustrator investigating art licensing as a second source of income. You can find out more about my work and current projects at DebbieOhi.com.

January 7, 2013: After some hard thought, I've decided to officially shut down this blog. I know I haven't updated it in a while, but I thought I should let you all know so you can remove it from your RSS feeds, etc.

Reason: I've decided that I need to find ways to make more time to read and create books.

I had great fun working on illustrating I'M BORED (written by Michael Ian Black, published by Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers in Sept/2012) and am now working on writing and/or illustrating new book projects. In addition to my picture book projects, I also want to get back to my novel writing.

My challenge: I want to do too many things and am currently involved in too many projects. My solution: To prioritize and cull.

You can find out what I'm working on at DebbieOhi.com or follow me on Twitter at @inkyelbows.

Thanks so much for your support and interest in my projects.

Learning how to do half-drop repeat patterns

WhiteGuy

Above: My first attempt at a half-drop repeat pattern in Photoshop.

Oo. Way fun and addictive, with possibilities for paper and fabric designs as well as texturing/background possibilities in my children's book illustrations. Thanks to children's book author and illustrator Jennifer Morris for posting her tutorial on how to create half-drop repeat patterns in Photoshop on her blog.
