this here is a portrait of Joel Grothaus I did for children's book illustration. It is a watercolor with ink
The imaginary client would be whoever it is that is publishing the "so you're going to be a grandma . . . " book that Joel has been working on these last few months. Its a proposed book-jacket illustration. Never mind the impracticality of having a book jacket illustration of an illustrator done by some other illustrator.
Check Joel out, he's in the blogroll.
