This assignment was for Cricket magazine. I wanted to revisit the acrylic paint technique that I had used to complete a book assignment earlier in the year to some success. This one didn’t turn out so nice. I’ve only included the opening illustration here in this post, as the other three illustrations weren’t that impressive. The original art for this one I no longer have, so I scanned the image from a copy of the magazine I have in my collection. This was a story about a young native american boy who goes on a hunting trip with the help of a guardian spirit in the form of a raven (if I remember correctly).
