I just completed two projects with different styles. Both were very different to execute, however equally fun! Below are some closeups and cropped samples. More later when they’re in print!
The March 2017 issue of Owl Magazine has a fascinating article by John Crossingham on the Peacock Spider. One fun thing about working on projects is what I end up learning! I had never heard of such a creature, and to read the story of this fascinating little spider was a bonus. I’m sharing the cover & spread, below, along with cropped versions of the spots in the layout. Take some time to read about this little creature! It’ll amaze you!
Just a little illustration to kick off the new year…
I was mucking around with this and tried several styles and backgrounds. Below is an earlier version. This kind of playing around can go on forever, as you know. You learn to say, “It’s/I’m done now” at some point.
That goes for a lot of things in life, eh? : )
Have a happy and productive 2017, all!
These are some snippets of illustrations I did for a book, recently published. Fun style to work in and a fun book to do! More details on the book later!
Here’s a really story I illustrated for HighLights HighFive’s August 2016 issue. It’s a fun story, written by Ellen Javernick. It’s true…Garden’s tend to yield too many tomatoes all at once! Too many for one person to eat themselves! (I could say the same for zucchini!). Also, what a super-cute cover, by Jess Pauwels! This issue is packed full of good stories, pictures, and activities, as usual! Thanks again, HighFive!
