Owlkids/Chirp Spread: Cambodia Boat Festival

I have a illustration spread published in this month’s issue of Chirp magazine (June ’13). It was a very fun piece to do (as all these busy, festival pieces are)!  Challenges with this project was working out the rough on my laptop and Wacom tablet (verses my desktop and Cintiq), and deciding from what angle to best depict the boats, festival goers and fireworks.  Below is the cover and spread, from afar:

    Thanks, Nancy! I appreciate you saying that! Some come easier than others, as you know. This one flowed better than usual. : )
