Safety Book – Interior Image – Page 3, Image 4

Here’s 4 of 4 images for page three of a safety-themed coloring book commissioned by Positive Promotions.  This page is showing four situations where you should call 911.  This one shows a boy who has apparently drank poison.  A bottle of cleaner is spilled on the floor and he’s doubled-over as if his stomach hurts.

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.
