I've entered into the world of Children's Book Illustration again. This venture is turning out to be a Great deal of Creative work! It's been a huge struggle, but one I'm very proud to be part of. I wish I could quit my day job, and just work on these for a while. The story takes place in a whimsical forest world, full of different creatures. Below are some of my sketches and final painted images. If this goes well, and we get this done for publication, I will post how to purchase at a later date.

Sketches of first couple of scenes in the book:

Below is a selection of Colored Creatures. These are on wood panel painted with Golden's OPEN Acrylic paints, and finished with some colored pencil.
