Trees Coloring Book


Doing some housecleaning on my instagram account, and when I got ready to showcase a few of the illustrations from the “Beautiful Trees” coloring book I did in 2016, I realized that I had not previously posted any samples from that book on this blog. So, to remedy the situation, here are a few samples from that book.



Just for the record, here’s what I drew on the day I turned sixty. Above is a coloring book page for my upcoming ‘Literary Horror’ themed book, good old Cthulhu. Below is another grizzled old monster from beyond the grave for Dover’s revised “Presidential Coloring Book”. I am moving on to whiskey and birthday cake. Have a good one y’all.

Martin Luther King Day

MacMillan, Penguin

Here’s a few samples from recent books that have featured Martin Luther King on this National Holiday. (the black and white ones are from “What Is the Civil Rights Movement?”, and the red white and blue ones are excerpts from “What Unites Us: The Graphic Novel” by Dan Rather.

Blast From the Past


Since I’m gearing up to start another coloring book, I thought I’d showcase a few illustrations from past volumes.

I’ve been housecleaning on my Instagram account over the past few weeks, and it occurred to me that I’ve never posted any of the illustrations from my ‘Cars’ coloring book. Here are a few personal favorites. The Chevy Vega (above) was my first car when I left home, purchased by my father, and nearly rusted out by the time I took it over. I never had a souped up engine installed like the one above, but I always felt it needed it.

My Grandfather worked on the assembly lines for Buick, (my Mother also worked for Buick, but in the front offices in the eighties), so this is a tribute to the Bachman side of my family (license plate a nod of the cap to my Uncle Ken, who also suggested the backdrop of the Flint Planetarium). Below is one of my favorite vehicles of the past fifty years, who only a handful of drivers were able to enjoy in its intended environment, the Moon Rover.
