I am a children's book artist. The work here is from various commissions, projects, and things that I just felt like doing, that don't always keep in the theme of children's books. If you are interested in hiring me, feel free to contact me. You can also contact me for prints of previous work.

Happy World Art Drop Day! Here are some hints at my contributions I stashed around Birmingham, AL. 

Happy Bug Festival
This is a piece is for a children’s book that is in one of my personal project stacks. I finally got it postcard ready. I think… Anyway, I am walking away from it now!

Here are a few rough sketches that I am currently turning into larger full color pieces. No inks for sea monsters this time.

Update

I know the visible activity here has been slow. I’ve mostly been plugging away at the book cover. And I am finalizing the Kampion trading card game piece, working with an art director in Portugal (How cool is that?! I mean if your’e nowhere near Portugal). I also entered a few contests, and found a sliver of time to shape up my final and much improved version of “Happy Bug Festival”. Next off to create postcards out of it for the mail. Then there was the Birmingham Art Crawl in July which I was a guest. Loads if fun, but a heap of work as well.

But I am happy to say, I am in the final approval stages of the book cover. The editor was clear of my intentions during the process, as I tried to keep her in the know, sending her shots of the WIP. Hopefully there won’t be any major alterations at this point. I can’t wait to share my work! Now, I am off to make the back cover. Small stuff compared to he countless reflections painted, the car remade in perspective with it’s own highlights and warped reflections. The wheels, with their geometric grids required for each ellipse needed. 3 different perspective grids. I just can’t believe it’s finished. This was the most demanding piece I have yet to encounter. 

Here is a scan with a bit of color splashed on.

Here are some more sketch cards for the upcoming AL Phoenix Festival. I love all these shows, games, movies; so it’s going to be hard to let these wee guys go
