Stuff I’ve posted on Instagram

Just in case you don’t follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any of the other social media platforms I frequent, here’s what you missed (in no particular order).

Behind the Scenes Children’s Book Illustration

“How To” Library series published by The Child’s World.


I thought it might be fun show you a little behind the scenes look at a few of the children’s book illustrations I did  for this series of “How To” library books. You might have noticed that one of the sketches still shows the colored line technique I used to use when I sketched on paper. It’s an old art guy trick I picked up many years ago while working with Disney designed to save time. I still find it useful even though I have drawn a sketch on paper in years. These days I sketch exclusively in Photoshop using a big honking Cintiq tablet. Not being able to zoom in on my sketch seems ridiculous. I image in a few short years as new technology replaces the desktop work station we’ll look back and wonder how we ever got along without it.
