Safety Book – Interior Image – Page 9

Here’s an image for page 9 of a safety-themed coloring book commissioned by Positive Promotions.  This one is my favorite.  It’s a maze with various locations in the neighborhood.  There’s the library, post office, a park, grocery store, and elementary school.  There’s also a little line of traffic.  You’re supposed to get the girls to school.

Hidden Picture Image

Here’s a commission I just sent in to Hart McLeod.

Hidden in the image are 12 pictures.  They weren’t supposed to be TOO hard to find, so you should be able to spot them.  A woman, a man, two girls, one boy, one owl, two rabbits, three turtles, and a frog.

Interesting thing about this project.  They told me which hidden elements they wanted to see, but said that the scene was the artist’s choice.  I hate that.  That means I had to figure out an interesting scene and compose it with no guidance or limits.  I love limits.  Contrary to what you’d think, I can be so much more creative if I have defined framework to work in.  Oh well.

Luckily, I pulled out this reference photo from my photo collection and used it as my framework.  I took this at the Overland Park Arboretum this fall.  There actually is a pond off the frame to the left, but it isn’t to the horizon like in the drawing.
