Sketch Day – Eye of the Storm

Been a while since I’ve shared any rough sketches. This week is sort of a ‘eye of the storm’ with several book projects at the halfway point between sketch and editor approval stages, and I’ve only got a few quick turnaround projects to occupy my time. The above is a rough sketch for a Hudson Valley illustration, and below is a rough sketch for another Dover Evergreen Classics book cover (‘A Little Princess’). I’ll be finishing these up later this week, and I’ll post the finishes at that time.

In the meantime, I’ve also been digging through the archives and discovering a treasure trove of cartoon spot illustrations that I did for Instructional Fair back around 1999-2004 that I have not previously shared on this blog. I’m thinking of doing some colorizing and repurposing of those illustrations for the stock art market. I’ll be sharing some of these collections on upcoming ‘Throwback Thursday’ posts, so stay tuned.
