Enter Kelley McMorris. Kelley's goal since graduation is to delve into the world of children's books. I don't think it'll take her very long to find an agent, a publisher, and a following. Her style is classic. I love her sense of color and her technique. Kelley's sensibilities seem to shine through each piece. I sense optimism in her illustrations, and I'm feeling rather optimistic this weekend.
You can check her progress on her blog or read an interesting interview on Chaos Magazine.
Don't forget to forward your favorite illustrator finds. I am always on the lookout for the next featured artist.
