The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators are holding a contest about a brother and sister having a creative and unexpected Thanksgiving, so I went with Thanksgiving at the Circus.

Playing Dress-Up

I recently got picked up by an Artist Representative on the East Coast, and it was suggested that I revisit this piece about a little boy playing dress up. The original was one of my first digital paintings, and I'm happy I upgraded.

Mountain Hiking

So I've gotten a lot of flak from my friends and family for not posting in awhile, but what can I say- I've been very, very busy having a wonderful summer. This is an image from one of the fun trips I took this summer. I sketched it with ink during a hike in the mountains, then brought it home for more detail and color in Painter.

Anti-Valentine Entry

The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators held a contest to create an anti-valentine illustration. I thought the idea of a little girl frustrated with the results of her "He loves me... he loves me not" petal-plucking was an endearing way to illustrate the concept.

Fishing with Dad

My family celebrated my father's birthday this week. I wanted to make a piece for him that would be special and sentamental to the good times we had fishing when I was a kid.

Nice Surprise

I was surprised to find an ad for the show I've been digitally inking characters for on the back cover of a comic book I saw today. I was very excited to see my work being used.

Back by Popular Demand

This is an image from the book I illustrated There was an Old Woman who Swallowed a Fly. My friends and family have a great affection for this cow- despite it's implied fate.
