Here’s the cover illustration I did recently for Well-Trained Mind Press. It’s for a children’s audiobook of Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories, as read by award-winning storyteller Jim Weiss. This is the fourth cover I’ve done for them, and I think this one may be my favorite so far. In addition to providing the cover […]
This illustration of an alphabet garden was a proposal I did for a Blue Manatee Press book called The Reading Room. While they ended up not using it, a friend of mine liked it so much, she bought a print for her 1-year-old daughter. She was also nice enough to send me some photos, and I was happy to […]
This week’s Illustration Friday submission comes from a children’s book I recently illustrated called Short Pump Bump.
Here’s a little something I did initially for the 21 Day Drawing Challenge by Von Glitschka (Day 6: Get Cubistic). I recently picked up the Megapack set of Photoshop brushes from the awesome Kyle T. Webster, and thought this illustration would be a great opportunity for me to play around with them.
Had the privilege of doing the cover illustration for a children’s storytelling CD called Tales From Cultures Far And Near. As the title suggests, the CD features traditional stories from various cultures around the world. The story I picked to illustrate was from Japan, called Two Monks, so I made my first-ever attempt at emulating […]
It’s been awhile since I did anything for Illustration Friday, but I’ve been wanting to get back into it. I’ve also been doing Von Glitschka’s 21 Day Drawing Challenge, so I thought of combining the two this week since Day 7 is Draw What You Like. This was a ton of fun to draw. I recently […]

Awhile back, I attempted to take on the “21 Day Drawing Challenge“, from Lynda.com’s Von Glitschka. I started off quite impressively (You can see my Day 1 drawing here.) but very quickly found myself wanting to use this opportunity to experiment with color and brushes in Photoshop. Which meant that I was […]
Recently I had the privilege of doing some more children’s illustration for Pennsylvania’s Power Kids Electronic Library. This time around I got to illustrate a few state symbols, the white-tailed deer, model K4s 1361 locomotive, and a mountain laurel. I also got to do a fun pair of illustrations of Ben Franklin conducting some children […]
Here is my first day of Von Glitschka’s 21 Day Drawing Challenge where we had to draw a cat. I liked it so much, I went ahead and finished him in Photoshop. My solution was to come up with an image that conveys my own fondness of cats and of what great companions they […]
