MATS ASSIGNMENT BOOTCAMP . JULY

And that's a wrap! Five months of MATS assignments and a few made it into the portfolio. Hooray! July's assignment was to create a children's book spread featuring a mouse with wings and a hummingbird with shoes. I was enjoying it so much I ended up making two pieces.

Enter...my magical mouse, Enid, and her pet rabbit Isobel. The two have all sorts of fun together- playing with Enid's dollhouse collection and adventuring outdoors. {Although, Isobel does get a bit bored when Enid practices piano.} In this particular story, both decide to go on a birding expedition in search of the elusive red-slippered hummingbird. In the end, Enid uses her extraordinarily super-powered green thumb to grow the bird's favorite flower, and, voila! the hummingbird appears.

This was by far my favorite assignment of the five. I am really enjoying children's book illustration and inventing stories. :)
