Discovery: Lizie’s Quest, My Entry for Susanna Leonard Hill’s 2nd Annual Illustration Contest


Discovery: Lizie’s Quest is my entry for
Susanna Leonard Hill’s
2nd Annual Pretty Much World Famous
Illustration Contest for Children’s Illustrators! 

Lizie’s discovering all different sources for his worm quest. Presently he’s investigating the genus: Lumbricus known to us common folk as our friendly earthworm. Watch out cause he’s also trying to figure out how to get containers opened…

For my illustration I used watercolor, watercolor pencils and micron pens.
