The Friendship Riddle
Hello, dear blog. It's been a while. I ended up with a very busy summer. But now, as it starts to cool down, my schedule has finally given me some breathing room. So I went ahead and updated emcguire.net, and these are a few of the new things you'll see there.
The Friendship Riddle was a new cover for Bloomsbury, and I was happy to team up again with Nicole Gastonguay as my art director. I also illustrated a few stories for American Girl Magazine, you can see a few images below.

And, last but not least, I've been doing my best to keep up with Inktober, the yearly drawing challenge started by Jake Parker. I've been posting these scattershot all over the internet, but mostly on Facebook and Twitter.

I've often wondered, as blogs have mostly been giving way to Tumblr and the more ephemeral nature of social media, if there is a point to having a blog anymore. I feel pretty attached to my little blog though, and I still enjoy reading illustration blogs for those who still keep them. It feels a little slower, but it's a format I think still has merit.

So thanks for reading, hope all is well.
