My piece is about Lina Medina who became the world's youngest mother on mothers day in 1939 at the age of 5 years (and 8 months) old. This story is both disturbing and amazing for what I hope are obvious reasons. Please feel free to read more about this interesting "true story" here.

The following are jpgs of paintings I've completed for this year's show.
From Amanda Woodward's illustration friday post on the 2nd show:
"The 2nd Annual Doctors and Derrieres event brings the appreciation of the human body to a whole new level! A group of highly talented Alberta artists have partnered in a unique way with University of Alberta International Health Initiatives by Medical students to support international projects important to them. Medical students, health professionals and doctors from Edmonton hospitals will take off their scrubs to raise money for two health related projects. The beautiful nude portraits that will result from this celebration of the human body will be auctioned off and the some of the proceeds will go towards Change for Children’s Community Health Project in El Salvador."

I've been asked to do some concept art for a mural in my local community which is thrilling! I've been researching different muralists and have come across a few very interesting pieces to be inspired by. Easily my favorite children's mural would have to be the one pictured here. I have not been able to find out the artists name but I can only hope to produce something as amazing in composition, colour, lighting and intrigue... If any of you know of amazing muralist artists links please forward them to me.
I also just completed a puzzles & fun illustration for Chickadee's 30th anniversary issue which comes out this June. Chickadee is a Canadian children's magazine that I actually subscribed to as a child which made the project even that much more exciting to work on.

I've done some progress on the 5th painting for the Growing Up Show. I'll admit that while this canvas is not large in comparison to many paintings that frequent art shows, this canvas has been daunting to me... looks like I might finish tomorrow though. Horrah!
