Safety Book – Interior Image – Page 2

Here’s an image for page two of a safety-themed coloring book commissioned by Positive Promotions.  A girl explains to her little brother that they live at 731 Fisher Road.  The mailbox and house both have the numbers 731 on them and the street sign at the corner shows their street is called Fisher Road.  The illustration shows how addresses work.

Moving Day – Image 1

Another commission for Learning A-Z.  This one is a family packing up their living room and kitchen, getting ready to move.

One problem with this scene was that they wanted both rooms to show, but in a portrait-oriented image.  So, I decided to make this house a front-to-back split with a short stairway between the two levels. That let me put the two rooms one in front of the other, but with the kitchen a half-story higher so as to increase the height of the image and keep the living room from blocking it.

It’s done entirely in one-point perspective.  Everything except the people and a few curves was drawn with virtual rulers.

It’s probably a small mid-eighties tract home, judging by the layout.  One that’s been updated with wood floors and new appliances.  But the kitchen is still too small and it doesn’t have a dishwasher.  I’d move too, if I were them.
