Children’s book Illustration

This is an illustration for a children’s book that I am illustrating for a friend. It is a really cute story about Christmas.

I posted some rough sketches for this a while ago, but I am finally starting to work on some of the finished illustrations (between everything else that I am doing). Painting isn’t one of my strong points, but I would really like to get batter at it, so hopefully when this book is finished, I will have gotten better, and the pictures won’t suck too much.

    Mike: I’ll be lucky to get it done for next year’s APE. I envy people who only have 1 job.

    Everyone else: Thanks guys. This will get done eventually, because I have someone who wrote it asking me every couple of months how it is coming, and I feel guilty if I don’t have anything else done. Besides….. I would really like to finish it for myself too………. eventually.

Nap time is over.¬† Besides working my full time job on Wayside, I’ve got a million other things on the go.¬† Of course, I have to get going on The Possum #3 comic, as well as¬†continue with this childrens book I started illustrating for a friend.¬† (I’ve been putting this off for too long).¬† I was also asked to contribute a few pages to an anthology comic being put out by the fine folks at¬†the Indie Spinner Rack, and the deadling for that is April 1st.¬†¬†I’m going to be putting in¬†a¬†2 page Possum story that was posted here a while back, but I have to add panels, and modify it to fit a comic book format.¬†¬†The anthology comic is going to debut at the Small Press Expo¬†in October, in Maryland.¬†¬†¬†Before I get The Possum #2 back from the printers, I have to update my website¬†and store, and work on getting this thing distributed, as well.¬† APE is also coming up soon!¬† Oh, and we’re getting ready to sell our town house and move to something a bit bigger.¬† (decluttering, putting things in storage, looking at houses etc.) […]
