December Book Project

Baker Book House

Nearing the end of 2016, and, as promised, here’s the illustrations I’ve spent most of December working on. This was for a book project for Baker, a young reader’s edition of ‘The God Smuggler’ (about a man who spends his life smuggling bibles behind the iron curtain). 30 black and white full page illustrations in a pen and ink cross hatching style. This is a style that I began using when I first started illustrating full time in 1989, but fell by the wayside in lieu of the more popular cartoon and scratchboard styles. These past few years, though, it has had a resurgence in popularity with my clients, especially for book publishing projects.
