I had the wonderful opportunity to illustrate a set of twelve comic book style numbers for the upcoming issue of SCBWI’s mid-Atlantic magazine, The Highlighter, for an article on writing graphic novels. Many of the designs are inspired by popular superheroes, such as Superman, Batman, Iron Man, The Human Torch, and X-Men’s Nightcrawler. Admittedly, […]
Summertime is in full swing, so here’s an illustration in honor of everyone’s favorite Summertime treat: ice cream! I did this illustration originally for HappyReading.org for a children’s poem called Ice Cream Man. I think I did close to a hundred illustrations for that client with a fairly tight turn-around time, which lent the whole […]
I got inspired by this week’s Illustration Friday challenge, team, to do a bunny soccer team. These challenges are a great opportunity for me to have fun exploring my Megapack digital brush set from the awesome Kyle T. Webster.
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 […]
Kid Hercules was a personal project I started years ago that I’m finally getting back around to. Since then, I’ve made several refinements to how I draw the main characters, in addition to expanding the story to an epic, multi-part series. Pop over to KidHercules.com for a peek at the original first three pages, and […]
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 […]
