Reach For The Moon by Nata Romeo

Reach For The Moon is a story I've been working on for a while. I incorporated Moon Seeds (true fact) into my story and would love to share this with children around the World. For those of you whom have never heard of Moon Seeds/ Moon Trees check out this link (it's FASCINATING!). I would like to find a traditional publisher for this story before I go with self publishing route.

Critique from Giuseppe Castellano

I got an AWESOME critique by Giuseppe Castellano, art director from Penguin. He said all good things, except that I should bring out the pencil crayons and add some details to the ghosts because his eye doesn't really rest on anything.  I learned so much from hearing him critique other illustrations from other artists. Thank you Bonnie! and Giuseppe!

SCBWI Illustrator Day watercolor illustration WIP

The illustration above is part of a work in progress double spread. Scarlet is one of my characters I created for a Reader that will be critiqued at a SCBWI Ilustrator day In Philadelphia on June 14, 2014. I was told that the letter 'S' on the bed is to bright so I will tone it down a bit before I begin the right side illustration of Igor, the boy ghost.
