Cupcakes! - New Sparkle Illustrations

I'm excited to post a few illustrations I recently completed for Sparkle, a magazine for GEMS Girl's Club.

These two illustrations will appear in the October 2009 issue:

And this illustration will appear along with the Sparkle mission statement on the back cover of the magazine for one year:

I have so much fun creating the illustrations for this magazine. Their stories have really helped me in developing girl characters in my artwork. I've always got to think about how to create the emotion in the character's faces and body language; and make sure that the clothing is fashionable with the young gals.

I'll be posting a few more in upcoming blog posts. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oooohh Cheryl I love these! I really like how you captured their unique facial expressions and body language. These will be very appealing to their intended audience! I love the last illustration--it just makes me smile and evokes feelings of happiness!

    What great exposure for your work to be on the back cover of Sparkle Magazine for a year! Congrats! Looking forward to your next illustrations ;D Let me know when you post them!

  2. Congratulations Cheryl! Your illustrations are really fabulous.
