Illustration Friday: Poof!

This is from my picture book dummy, "Lula's Brew."
When you create a dummy, you only end up rendering a few of the illustrations fully, so I end up with a lot of pencil drawings that I would love to color, but don't have time to unless the story sells. I hope this one does because boy would I love to color Lula failing at yet another attempt to make a proper potion - *POOF!!

It looks like a story that would sell. Great drawing. There's nothing wrong with a great pencil drawing.

Lula's story needs to be told. I love all the images you have shared with us over the past months. And let's remember too, that you won the BIGGIE (Smart Writers' Award) for one of the finished pieces. So good luck..let's hope you can create the magic brew that sells this book!
