It's here, it's here! My first article for Cloth Paper Scissors magazine has arrived to subscribers! (these photos are from my friend Mel) The May/June 2011 issue should be on your news stands any day, if it's not there already.
I'm over the moon excited about this, even made it on the cover! Well, almost. Those are my little hand drawn flowers in the upper right corner of the magazine cover. My 5 page article is titled "Making Magic with Markers". It's about my love for Copic markers in my artwork and teaching.
It features my original, hand drawn art, full color illustrations and some small tutorials on how to use Copic markers and get beautiful blends in your projects. It's my take on an "artful" way to color. After all, coloring is very relaxing and really good for you!
I must say that my favorite part of the article is some FREE ART! I created this black and white illustration for readers to print out and color. It's a special little "whimspiration" that you can practice your coloring and then display.
So pick up the May/June issue, color along with the little lesson and create your own Copic color-full masterpiece!
