Above is a spot illustration I finished up this morning for the American Bar Association. I’ve been working with the ABA since 1997 (so, just a little over twenty years, right about the time I switched from traditional to digital illustration), and their projects are always interesting and challenging. This was for a story on international law as how it may apply to businesses in the heartland of the USA. Also this weekend, a chance encounter with an old client I hadn’t heard from in a while, led to another upcoming book project. This one will be a reprint of an older children’s book with several illustrations by me, somewhat imitating the style of classic illustrator Harrison Cady. I did one over the weekend as a sample (pictured below), and I’ll give you more information as it comes across the desk sometime in June and July.
In the meantime, I’m currently working on two book projects for MacMillan, both somewhat connected to themes on the United States Presidency. I should be finishing both of those up by the end of the month, and will share some samples once they are published.
Been a busy month medically for the whole family. Our dog started us off with some veterinary surgery, then the wife had some unexpected emergency surgery, and then an extended stay at the hospital for an infection, and I finished us off last week with some hernia repair. Everybody’s starting to finally get back on the mend, and spring has arrived in Michigan with lots of rain, leaves have popped on all the trees and Summer is only a few short weeks away.
