Hey readers and readettes, Maria and I are working on a new children’s book called A Bumpy Journey, about a hapless rock searching for his purpose in life. Today I’m posting the unfinished version of page 5, where poor and pebbly Bumpy is being sent on his way (yet again!). Look out for A Bumpy Journey sometime in late-2018. Until then, I’ll be posting more teasers for your viewing pleasure. Have a rockin’ day! – Quiet Riley

For this week’s art challenge, I had to draw something using only two colors, so I used different shades of green and blue and drew a panda bear eating bamboo.

Inspired by the movie, Coco, I attempted to etch a Día de los Muertos skull on my own. The etching part went fine, but the applying the paint and making an imprint part was another story. The results can be seen below. A few months later, my friend encouraged me to draw the skull digitally. The results were much more satisfactory, teaching me the valuable lesson: never give up on unfinished work.
