About the Artwork

Miss August is a little bit punk and all about the attitude! Or character. She’s got plenty of both! And she’s totally on trend for the fall 2017 fashions, which is obviously also super important.

I’m just about to get started on Miss September and hopefully catch up with these!

This is the first painting where I’ve painted some of it in PaintstormStudio, a newish digital painting program. I really loved the realistic paint strokes and blending capabilities! It felt like real paint! You can bet I’ll be using it more and more in my work.

I’ve been pretty full up on commissions and helping out my wonderful hubby with illustrations and promotional images for his books (he’s an indie author – you can check out his website here: http://www.josephjohnfiction.com). Not that I’m complaining. Hoping I’ll be able to share some of those commissions from earlier this year with you guys soon!
