I have an illustration I did for the IF topic "propagate" (see it on my blog) last year. I figured I'd do a quick sketch showing the little girl about to harvest what she planted. It would be fun to actually complete this image and maybe even come up with some story.
When I think of an autumn harvest, I go back the apple picking excursions of my joyful youth. The Lynd Family would open a whole new field of apple trees in their Ohio orchard just for my family (we were/are so many!) Oh! the BOUNTY of sweetness - of all kinds.
I am grateful to be a part of this blog ~ where else to post a sketchy sketch than The Sketchables? With joy ~ Kathy B
Katherine Blackmore is hard at work on her first picture book but took some time to pinch sketch for me! You can find her bounty of art @ http://www.katherineblackmore.com/
The fabulous Greg Matusic is pretty well known around the #kidlitart circles, but I thought I'd give him a chance to say hi to the rest of you folks. He's helping me out and sharing his interpretation of Harvest:

I've been drawing a lot of kids for a while now and felt like mixing it up a bit. It's funny because I used to always draw animals. This is my second sketch. The first one was another drawing of my son and dog, and let's face it, I need get back to some variety :o). I do admit though, I thought of a mother and son and what could be cozier than a snuggle and nap? The image is drawn with pencil, then scanned into Photoshop and painted digitally.
On those evenings in college when my friends and I had been out all night, we always ended up at the IHOP for post-evening refueling before crashing out at home. These ghouls and guys look like they're doing the same! What were some of your post-revelry habits?
