Today I completed the ‘Car Coloring Book’ project for Dover with a trio of color plates of some of the interior pages for usage on the cover. I’ll be sharing more samples from this book after it is published. In the meantime, a happy 4th of July to everyone, and I’ll have some older samples (from previous coloring books) to share next week.
I’m currently working on another adult coloring book project (this one on ‘Cars’), so I thought I’d share a few more samples from the ‘Animals Coloring Book’ for Dover that I did last year. Above is one of the ‘colorized versions’ that they used for the back cover, and below are eight more sample pages from the interior. The ‘Car’ coloring book should be available later this year.
A few jobs that I worked on over the weekend. I’m still in the middle of the Ten Commandments book project for Penguin, but should be wrapping that one up next week. The job above was one for the Chronicle of Higher Education that I finished this morning, and below is another book cover for Dover’s ‘Evergreen Classics’ series of reprints, this one being a ‘two books in one’ edition of ‘Tom Sawyer Detective’ and ‘Tom Sawyer Abroad’. I’m also continuing work on my band’s upcoming CD release, which we are hoping to get out in early summer.
I’ve still got a few more coloring book pages to share from last year’s ‘Animals’ book, plus some samples from the newer ‘Beautiful Trees’ book. I’ll also be sharing another of my ‘Who Was’ books from a couple years ago. Stay tuned.
Been working on a series of 50 spot illustrations for an upcoming book, which I hope to share with you soon (next week, probably), and in the meantime, I finished up a few more classic reprint book covers for Dover this week. Above is the art for ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’, and below is the art for ‘A Christmas Carol’.
