Illustrator, Kelley McMorris

Happy Saturday!! I love finding new and interesting illustration by people I have never heard of. I guess it gives me courage.

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.

  1. Wow, thank you for featuring me here! I only found this blog by Googling myself. I appreciate the kind words! (I did find an agent, by the way!)

    1. So glad you found your way here. I admit it was the Indian heroine who first caught my attention. Travel to Kerala if you can. It is one of my favorite places to visit. I can't wait to see what you're up to next. Congratulations!


Thank-you for taking time to share your thoughts!
