book illustrations


I have finally finished all the illustrations for the upcoming Littlejim book, to be published this summer. Here are LJ & his sister going to get firewood on a cold, moonlit, winter's night at their farm; next is the day LJ learns of his winning entry written for the Kansas City Star. These are the final versions.

Illustration Friday: Spotted



This large-mouth bass is a character in my first children's book published in 2002. Her name is Madame Mossback. She can outsmart any fisherman. Note for experienced fishermen: one angler is "cheating" by using bait & a spinner together. He is desperate!
