My all-time favorite author-illustrator is Chris Van Allsburg. And his book, THE MYSTERIES OF HARRIS BURDICK has to be near the top of my list of favorite books. This sketch was a little shout out to Mr. Burdick.
I spent months drawing great horned owls for the upcoming book, WHOO-KU by Maria Gianferrari. She wrote an amazing book, and I can't wait to share it with the world. Here's a sketch of this beautiful bird.
When I saw this man’s image, I instantly fell in love with the lines on his face. He tells a story without ever speaking a word.
One of my favorite authors, C. S. Lewis… I’m always amazed by those individuals who can start a drawing just as well as they finish it. I am not one of them. And to speak nothing of the finished sketch, my beginnings almost always look the handiwork of my 3rd grade self… except worse… sigh…
