Awwwwww…

Jennie (my fiance) has been helping me remodel the bathroom. We’re ripping out cheap tile from the 70’s and replacing it with white panelling. Today I walked in to find this poem written by Jennie on the wall. When the bathroom is remodelled again some day in the future, someone will read this and know we were there. I’ve got the coolest fiance ever!

Summer Camp

I’m illustrating a large map of a campground for a curriculum publisher. I usually work in Photshop or Painter, but have decided to try Illustrator for a change. It’s a lot of work but I like the look of having no outlines (sort of like Cartoon Network’s Foster’s Home of Imaginary Friends and Krypto the Super Dog). I’m excited to see how it turns out! Here’s a detail of the map so far.

Children’s Book Finished

I’ve recently finished a new children’s book for Living Waters Publications. It’s titled “What Your Nose Shows” and written by Ray Comfort. It should be published later this summer. Apparantly a much larger publisher is considering turning this book into a series, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Here’s a few sample pages.


Animation Podcast

I am so excited! There’s now a podcast devoted solely to animation. So far there are four interviews with animators Andreas Deja and Nick Ranieri, with more to come. This is a professional sounding podcast with meaty content, unlike most of the amateur-sounding podcasts flooding the internet. Very inspiring stuff! http://www.animationpodcast.com/
