Roman Centurion Portriat

Dusting off some serious blog cobwebs today to post this unique portrait commission. As a Christmas gift commission I was asked to do a portrait like I had never before. The subject of the drawing as a roman centurion. I was so excited about the idea and was happy to use some illustration techniques to bring this idea to life. If you have a creative portrait idea for someone, contact me today :) e-mail: olga@illustrationsbyolga.com

Mr. Groundhog book in Silver City Sun- News!

I was so delighted to read an article today, written by Christine Steele of the Silver City Sun-News, that included "Mr. Groundhog Wants the Day Off".  The article was about Governor Susan Martinez, of New Mexico, spending time in a first grade classroom reading the book to students; distributing a copy to each student; and encouraging them to continue reading. It was such an honor to have one of my books be a part of such a wonderful event. :) Read the full article Here.
