Hi I'm Shannon!

  • @Sas Hey Sas! Thank you, it's great to see you here! πŸ™‚

  • @Julia You're definitely heading in the right direction though, your work is very good for someone who calls themselves a beginner πŸ˜ƒ

  • @ShannonB Aww thank you Shannon! Same to you!

  • Welcome Shannon! You have some good perspective in the pieces you shared, and I like your color style.

  • Hi Shannon, your work is awesome. Have you checked out the "childrens writer's and artist's yearbook" it has a directory in it for publishers in the UK some in Ireland too geared towards children's books. It also has a bunch of other info and Agents contact details too.

    Shannon! Welcome! I have been following you on Instagram for a while. I missed your introduction here, else I would’ve said hi already. I couldn’t believe it when you said you are a beginner, I had to go back and check your follower count πŸ˜‚. It’s WAY bigger than mine😜.
    You’re style is very inspiring to me. I have no doubt that you will not consider yourself a beginner for much longer.
    We are in different parts of the globe, but I joined the forum for the same reason. I needed art friends. And I found many here. It is a warm happy place for artists who are serious about their goals. I am your fan, but I will be your art friend too. 😜

  • @RHirsch Hi Rebecca, great to meet you and thank you so much! Perspective is my nemesis so I've been working on improving it! Great to see some of your work too, it's so sweet and whimsical πŸ˜ƒ

  • @Phil-Cullen Hi Phil, thanks so much! I love your work, seen your print of Little Red Riding Hood somewhere a while back and loved it πŸ˜ƒ I haven't but I definitely will, thanks for the suggestion! πŸ™‚

  • @burvantill Hey Lisa! It's great to see you here too πŸ˜ƒ Ahh well I guess I'm a beginner to trying illustration! I have been posting on Instagram for a good few years now although I had no idea what I was doing or where I wanted it to go for a long time. I went to art college but it wasn't specialising in illustration and I didn't even really realise I could just go do it myself so when I finished last year that's what I started to do!
    Ahh thank you so much, you are so kind πŸ™‚ It seems to be such a lovely supportive place for people, and totally agree with you, it's great to be surrounded by lots of others who share the same interests and goals πŸ™‚ Yay for art friends!! πŸ˜ƒ
    Hope to see more of your work soon! πŸ˜ƒ

  • Hello Shannon,
    Lovely work, I really like the textures . Am based in rural north Devon, currently studying on a foundation and also do not know many illustrators locally!
    All the best

  • Hi Shannon! Your work is great! I love the details.

    Love your stuff!
