Over the past several months I’ve had the opportunity to illustrate a few children’s ebook covers! I really enjoyed these stories, and illustrating for this type of story was a really fun and new experience. The series is ongoing, so there will be more books in the future. It was such a delight to work with the author C. J. Milbrandt on these covers, she is fantastic! 

If you have a moment to check it out you can read more about these stories here. From the author’s website about the books: “Ewan, Zane, and Ganix—three brothers who take sibling rivalry to new lengths as they race each other across their homeland.”

Ah HA! Was anyone expecting a winged bear?! The lady there has a name and a story, hers is one of several personal project stories I have in the works. I hope to be able to show more from her story and others soon. This was a fun drawing, I’m thinking about painting it one of these days. :)

Almost done…for now?

Took a little break from writing/drawing to… draw. What will this become?? Only time will tell, ‘cause I won’t.

Super blurry photo from class last night! Making some leaves.

I made a fire poker! Well, almost. Next class I’ll finish the actual poker part and clean it up. There are a lot of areas that are overworked and the bottom loop is off a bit, but I learned a lot!

Wayne and I are taking a blacksmithing class! Last night was the first lesson: bottle openers. As you might can see, neither if us are pros yet, but eventually we’ll be awesome!
For a long time Wayne and I have both been interested in blacksmithing and now we’re finally taking the first steps! When I was just a little kid I would attempt to make stuff in my dad’s shop with scraps of metal. I would tell my mom I was going to be a blacksmith when I grew up (around the same age I discovered illustration) and my dad even gave me a tiny anvil! I’ll be a blacksmith yet, mom! I just need, ya know, 10,000 more hours of practice. Perhaps some day I’ll be an illustrator blacksmith and Wayne’ll be a physicist blacksmith. One can dream!
