Here’s a pair of cute cacti enjoying their time to bloom in the desert. When I was growing up, my dad always had at least one cute little cactus as a houseplant. They were usually round and hairy and had funny names like ‘Herbert’ or ‘Cousin It.’ It wasn’t until we moved to Texas, where […]

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 […]

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.
