Story Illustrations April 7, 2010






I have begun to illustrate a short story I wrote some time ago. You can see the shortened version here. This is the very first illustration. The protagonist playing with her toy beneath the table. I still don't have a title for this story, if you have any ideas, leave them in the comments.

This is one of the best kinds of posts for me to see - how people create what they create! It doesn't minimize the magic in any way, shape or form. It's absolutely fascinating.

Your stories have so many layers and symbols,you are so creative. Glad you enjoed the cupcakes...I have a grea book called Hello Cupcake that shows how to make the most adorable cakes. My favorite is the schnauzer and the Yorkie, you boys would love these! Have a great Wednesday, can't wait to see your Alpha-B Thursday post!

I like it...I love the texture of the wooden table.But certainly more than that, the atmosphere you create...wonderfully dark.

Julie...this painting is stunning, even as is. I am really liking the current "unfinished" state.

I remember your post about the story. I so need to start a Julie Schuler fan club!

I don't know what happened to my comment!

In a nutshell I gushed over this illustration. I really like the current "unfinished" state it is in but look forward to see it progress.

Oh and I think I also wrote about starting a Julie Schuler fan club or some such thing.

Let's see if this one makes it through
