Children’s Book Illustration
Guitar Case Commission
One Just for Fun
Thought I’d go ahead and share some projects I’ve been working on recently. I’d love to hear your comments 🙂
I Started illustrating a new children’s book recently. This is the story of Bug & Teddy. They get up to all kinds of adventure and I’m finding it fun to create these illustrations. This is the first of many beautiful images that you will find in my upcoming children’s book “Bug & Teddy’s Adventure”, based on the antics of my very own daughter and her best friend Teddy.
Bug and Teddy were inseparable growing up. They went everywhere together and got into all kinds of mischief. She loved him dearly and still has that bond even though she is grown and off to college. I raised my daughter as a single mom so Teddy took on the responsibility of looking out for us. He died when he met the business end of an angry dog and we have missed him ever since. So this is a book, and possibly a series of books, done as a tribute to Teddy and a gift to my daughter. This way, Teddy will always be with her.
Although I have illustrated children’s books in the past, this will be the first one that I have attempted. I will share each new illustration as I create them if you’re interested in watching my progress.
If you are interested in commissioning me for your children’s book illustration, I’d love to hear about your book and discuss your project with you. Have a look at my services and illustration examples and then contact me and I can create a custom quote just for you.
I am an artist, and illustrator, and a book cover designer. I have been asked quite a bit in the past for a link to my portfolio where people could see examples of not only my cover design, but my illustrations, maps, and logos as well.
All I had to share was a link to an album on Google+ which I doubt did a very good job of showcasing my work.
So today I took the time to put together some graphic design banners that feature my work and then used Youtube to put them to music and tada! I have a brand new video portfolio that I am going to share on my about me page.
All said and done, not counting the time it took to create the artwork, logos, maps and book covers, the entire video took me about six hours to make.
I’d love to get your feedback on it, I need to know if everything is clearly visible or if I need to make a few adjustments.
Either way, I appreciate you taking the time to check it out 🙂

I’ve created a new map illustration. You can see how it turned out below. I am especially happy with the compass in this map. I create each one from scratch, hand drawing them first and then taking them into photoshop for the final touches.
Here is a copy of the compass I designed for this map. I think it looks kind of steampunk. What do you think?
Map illustrations are one of my most favorite types of projects to work on. There is just something about maps that appeals to my creativity.
