    Lady Luck Final – March Kidlit Collage

    Despite being sick this week I got my Kidlit Collage image done! I did this completely in Clip Studio Paint. I’m not sure that I’ll use this coloring style on all my art, but I feel like it’s something I’ll do again. I’ve actually started coloring like this for the cover of the Writing Challenge booklet! 

    Want to join me  and Christy Ann (@christyillustrates on Instagram) in Kidlit Collage? There is no sign up! Just post your image on Instagram (and other social media) and tag #kidlitcollage. That way we can see your work!

    Writing Challenge Update

    This weekend I’m working hard  to get all my ducks in order for the big writing event. (sign up for the event is here: https://www.daniduck.com/register-for-the-writing-challenge/  The main thing I’m doing is gathering names and asking  people to join as guests. This is my least favorite part of the event process.

    Yes, I’ve done a lot of event planning in the past for Smart Dummies, but asking people to join only gets slightly easier. I’m over the fear of people yelling at me about the event, but asking is still hard. Even when people are friends. Especially when the people I am asking are friends. I love you all and I hope I’m not annoying!

    I’m still looking for names for the challenge. If you have a name feel free to add it below!
