Been deep into several concurrent book projects this month, all with samples I won’t be sharing for a while for contractual reasons. Today I had a spot illustration assignment for Delaware Today magazine (one of three on various topics), and since I haven’t posted in a while, decided to share this one with the few readers still hanging around.
I recently finished up two books in the Penguin Young Readers’ “Who Was” series. “Who Was Charles Schulz?” and “What Was the Harlem Renaissance?” (the 22nd and 23rd title in this series that I’ve illustrated), and somewhere in the middle of working on those, I contracted for two more books in the same series; “Who Was Jimmy Carter?” and “What Was the A.I.D.S. Crisis?” (24th and 25th if anyone is keeping score).
At the same time I am working for MacMillan on a couple of books, one on Global Warming, and another one on the McCarthy Witch Hunts. And speaking of witches, another ‘Witches Companion’ cover will be forthcoming by the end of the month. Stay tuned, more updates to come.
