I am behind on posting some samples of illustrations I did for Highlights magazine this year. Short story is that I get my samples sent to Texas so there’s usually a delay to my actually seeing the printed pieces. Anyhoo, below are two spreads and a spot. Thanks Highlights! You’re always a pleasure to work for!
Below: Danny and the Triangle (June ’09)— A little boy’s excursion into playing percussion instruments and drums.
Below: The King of Halloween (Oct ’09). A boy has a “serious Halloween problem”; his friends have already taken all the normal costumes. He therefore has to come up with something. Hmmm…What will he be..?
(Addendum: After receiving a lovely comment by the author of “The King of Halloween”, Tina Connolly, I noted that on her blog she has an entry posting her response when she found out (and saw) that her story had been published in Highlights. It’s interesting to hear the author’s view on seeing their piece in print!)
Below: Your Best Self (Nov ’09)–Every issue of Highlights magazine has a YBS spot, an encouragement to be kind and good to your fellow human beings. In this case, share your cookie!
