Wrapping Up Monster Week with Star Trek and the Gorn

Monster Week – Kirk Fights the Gorn I don’t know what it is about monsters but they sure are fun to draw. Am I right?

Most of them were CD’s or DVD’s but I found a couple Zip Drives in there too. […]

Wild Thornberrys – An Inside look at Illustrating Licensed Art for Picture Books.

A Wild Thornberrys Book Illustrated by Bob Ostrom When I first started doing children’s books I focused mainly on licensed properties. I did work for all the big guys… Disney, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and lots of others. It was a pretty sweet gig with the exception of one thing. Illustrators who work in the world of licensed art can tell you that it’s kind of a lonely business. Your work is everywhere but you are […]
