My children’s illustration Hot Spot, done for HappyReading.org, was chosen as Illustration of the Week by the good folks over at FoundFolios.com. Here’s what they had to say: This week’s illustration winner is Charlottesville artist Scott DuBar, for his cute, colorful kid-friendly image of (we like to think) a future Internet mogul on her first […]
I recently completed a giant display illustration for TeeGee Toys, who will be first-time exhibitors at the 2012 New York Toy Fair this Feb 12-14. At 10’x8′ it is literally the biggest job I’ve ever had! I’m super excited that my work will be on display at one of the coolest events in the world. […]

This was originally done as a spot illustration for HappyReading.org to accompany a poem titled “Jamari is Smart.”
UPDATE: Here’s the final piece in glorious, living color! Below is the pencil version. Basically the idea for this is how kids can turn just about anything into a toy and be totally happy. I know I wasn’t the only one who ever got some big new toy for Christmas or a birthday, played with […]
