This is a very morality focused storyline, if you haven’t gathered yet. Since the kids goofed off so much before, it catches up to them. They aren’t paying much attention during the game, assuming they’ll win with no effort, and so they lose the final championship game.

A Basketball Story – Interior 9
Oh, I’m sorry. I got a bit distracted over Thanksgiving and didn’t get around to posting the rest of this series. Here’s the 9th interior.
From A Basketball Story, a picture book I illustrated for Entrepreneur Media Inc.
The Sea Turtles have heard that the Jackrabbits get a trip to FUNZone if they win all their regular season games. They’re determined to stop that. I intentionally chose to depict the two huddles, essentially the same pose but with different characters, from two different views.
Tree and Kite
The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) is having a Postcard Illustration Contest. I created some images for the competition. They are supposed to be kite-themed. Here’s the first one.
What came first?
So, I updated this one. It’s about twice as long now and more fully reflects the intricacies of a true internet debate.
(There’s a lot of text in this one. Please let me know if you spot any typos. Thanks.)
Wordless Comic Strip
I can’t remember if I posted this yet. Another Hart McLeod one for a third grade textbook. This one was supposed to be an intentionally vague, wordless comic strip. The student is supposed to write a story explaining what frightened the stick-man.
So, what do YOU think happened in this strip?
Elephant and Mouse with Balloon
Just a quick, sketchy thing…
Chicken or Egg
Which came first? The chicken or the egg?
Please note that this is a bit simplified, since it’s doubtful that the distinction between a red jungle fowl and a chicken came about in just one generation. More likely, there were quite a few generations of a long grey area between sorta-a-red-jungle-fowl-sorta-a-chicken before it became obviously the distinct species we now call a chicken. Plus, they think they might have bred them with the grey jungle fowl as well.
Dammit, Jim, I’m an illustrator, not a biologist.
Either way, the egg still came first.
