This is a a page out of a bok that I'm working on.
This is before the textures and pattern work is applied.
The elephant's shirt gets to be an orange color after texuring so it sepeartes from the border.
This look is different than what I usually do because they asked me to try and match another artists look.

New Web art

I finished the art that I will be using as my home page when I revamp my web site.

The art was painted with watercolors with a little bit of colored pencil detail and the line art was done with a mixture of PITT artist pens.

This is the original sketch

Illustrated Alphabet Letter X

X is for Xylophone.

I was asked to "pinch hit" on the letter X for our upcoming SCBWI Gallery show this October in Chesterton,IN.
I didn't want to go with the standard X is for Xylophone at first. Because it's standard and I don't normally do standard.
I played with the idea of XXL and doing a scene with a giant and some small characters, and I played with the idea of X marks the spot where I was going to do a pirate hunting for treasure. But I figured that was getting too far away from the X, so I decided to go with xylophone after all but not make the instrument the focus of the image.
The art was made with watercolors, and pen on watercolor board.
