Animal Coloring Book


Getting old and forgetful. I was just looking back through my past year of blogging here, and I realized that I had promised back in September that I’d be sharing the illustrations from the ‘Animals Coloring Book’ that came out last year, and I completely forgot to follow through with it. Since this book is rather lengthy, at 50 pages, I think I’ll post them in installments. Here’s the first 8 pages, plus one of the colorized illustrations used for the cover.

Of course, the follow-up book to this one, ‘Beautiful Trees’ will be coming out next month, and I’ve just received my author copies in the mail this past week, so I’ll be likely following up this series of posts with a series devoted to that book (if I don’t completely forget about it that is…).

Who Was Julius Caesar?


The fifth book for Penguin Young Readers, and part of their ‘Who Was’ series of biographies, was ‘Who Was Julius Caesar?’ This was 2014, and I would do four titles in this series during the course of the year (including the previously posted illustrations for ‘What Was the Lewis and Clark Expedition?’). I have posted a few samples from this book in the past, but this is the first time I’m sharing every one of the 80 or so illustrations in the book.

Book Covers


More book cover illustrations for Dover’s ‘Classics’ reprints. Above is ‘Captains Courageous’ and below is ‘Eight Cousins’. Still working on a new paper doll project, and had to put off starting on the annual ‘Oscar Poster’ until I get some free time (maybe in a few weeks).
