Self Portrait BW
This is an old self portrait I scanned in and removed the aging from the paper. The artwork is at least 30 years old.
When I was in Alaska, I saw a bumble bees snacking on the flowers and was fascinated by the fact that their lower abdomen had a reddish orange tint to it. I snapped a picture with my phone and used it as the reference for this drawing. Because of course I brought my supplies with me. :)
Return From The Dead
Throughout my Drawlloween offerings, I had this lady featured. I thought about making everyone of them themed around her but didn't find the inspiration on some.


Pam Mangol

Last year (2010), around July, I had decided to forego art for writing. I figured I couldn't concentrate on both so I made a hard choice. Within a month's time, I had my first paid for publication called Fate Whispers (currently up at Golden Visions Magazine's site for Spring 2011). Yes, it takes that long sometimes to see it in print.

My gamble had paid off.

I still dabbled in art but never took it as serious as I used to. Then I got a request from someone to do their cover art for a book. I met this person through a writing site and, honestly, I have a hard time saying no.

Thanks to her, I realized--if I balanced my time--I could do both art and writing.

So here I am, almost a year later. I have two writing publications under my belt and have submitted artwork for consideration for cover art.

It proves to me you can have it all if you work it right.
