June 18: “Allison Is an Astronaut”

I had a load of fun working on this spread for the July 2018 issue of High Five magazine! This poem, “Allison Is an Astronaut”¬† by Barbara L. Scanian was such fun to create a scene for! Since I’ve been taking up star gazing again, I enjoyed recreating a solar system mobile, books about stars and planets, sketches that “Allison” drew, and that fun star background.¬† I’ve been using a bit of collage in my illustrations¬† again, seen on the floor and the star background. And besides the poem, this is a puzzle, too. Look for the letter “A” hidden throughout the illustration.

Such fun! It was great to work with Kelley Cunningham Lanuto on this! Thanks again, Kelley!
