Where Is The Eiffel Tower?

Penguin

ET1

 

My twelfth book for Penguin Young Readers in the “Who Was/Where Was” series was this book on the Eiffel Tower (available on Amazon here) which I did in 2016. I hesitated upon accepting this project at first, as my least favorite things to draw are buildings (I had previously passed on a similar book on the Twin Towers), but I took it as a challenge, and vowed to do my best at a difficult assignment. By the time I was finished, I felt it was my best work to date for this client, and took a great deal of pride in how the final product turned out, and learned quite a bit in the process. I’ve shared a few samples of this book in the past, but this is the first time I’m sharing each and every illustration.

One of my ‘new years resolutions’ this past January, was to try and draw more in the many blank sketchbooks that I have laying around. I’ve never been a reliable sketchbook artist, and often find, that after a long day of drawing for hire, that the last thing I feel like doing is drawing for fun. But I have made a concerted effort this year to address that situation. Here are a few samples of ‘just for fun’ doodles that I have done this past year.
