I've been working the last few weeks on some new original paintings to sell on my site soon. I thought it would be fun to repurpose some of these into art for potential home decor, fabric and paper products. Will show more as these come together.
About two years ago, I posted a story board for a picture book I was working on called THE LONELY BUNNY. After many drafts and great feedback from friends, it became a wordless picture book called DUST BUNNY WANTS A FRIEND. Now two years later, I'm in the process of handing off final art to the publisher, Schwartz & Wade. Such an incredible journey filled with tons of sketches, doodles, character studies, scans, paint tests, revisions and Photoshop. I can't wait to show you more, but for now I thought it would be fun to show some of the process.
DUST BUNNY WANTS A FRIEND comes out in Spring 2019.
I love maps so have been working on adding a few to my portfolio. Here's one I created to tell the story of Hansel & Gretel.
Excited about how these two book covers turned out!
Having fun illustrating various bunnies and doodle bugs today!
Hello blog, it's been a while! I've been busy catching up from the holidays. Here's a little something I've been working on this week... a "year of the winged monkey" illustration.
I've been making a good bit of progress over the last few weeks on the Yellowstone book illustrations. Last week, I started scanning several of the paintings and laying out the book in InDesign. One realization I had as I started doing this was that the book needed more quiet space. Having spread after spread of full on painting was overwhelming. So I'm going to do finishing touches in Photoshop. Here's some of that process. Also turning on comments now! :)
