Recycling Book – Page 7

Here’s an image that appears on page 7 of a coloring book about recycling commissioned by Positive Promotions for Earth Day.  I don’t think I quite hit the character consistency as well as I could have on the girl on the left.  Her cheeks really should have been a little rounder.  Casualty of this being a rush job.  But I really like how the overall scene with the tree and the swing and such turned out.

My Treehouse – Page 9

Here’s page 9 from My Treehouse, a short graded reader I recently illustrated for Learning A-Z.  The girl really has a remarkable view from the deck of her treehouse.  If you look close, you’ll see a road with two bridges.  One over a river and another over railway tracks.  There’s traffic on the road.  The distant fields have trees along the fencelines and there are cows in a field closer in.

My Treehouse – Cover Spread

Well, I’ve been super busy lately.  When that happens, nothing gets posted on the website at all.  But today I’ve got a bit of a breather while I wait on feedback from a client, so I’m setting up some posts.

I illustrated a short graded reader for Learning A-Z titled My Treehouse.  Here’s the spread for the wrapped cover on that one.  The first page is the same image, but a cropped version showing just the right-hand side of this scene.
