The Story of the Three Little Pigs by Amanda Sandlin

This has been such a helpful and fun class so far — thank you Lisa! I am excited to develop one of my ideas and have a final piece to show soon. :)



I originally sketched a bunch of very rough ideas out in pencil, but what I was drawing didn't really excite me. Then I took two of my favorite pencil ideas and quickly mapped them out with two of my favorite tools — a watercolor marker and an oil pastel. 

Suddenly I began seeing a vision for each in my mind, and I felt a new energy and confidence light me up. Although the pencil phase was helpful for getting a ton of ideas onto paper, using other tools helped my concepts feel more complete. And made everything so much fun!
