Milo's Garden, Pages 22 & 23

Here are more process photos for Milo's Garden. In this image, a gang of dubious (yet very jolly) characters are stealing a tree that grows musical instruments. As with the previous illustrations from this project, I used acrylics and color pencils to render the finals.

Representation

I'm proud to announce that I'm now represented by Brianne Johnson of Writer's House for all my children's book work! I'm excited to be working with an agency that represents some of my very favorite authors and illustrators. To check out my portfolio and to contact Ms. Johnson, head over to my page at the Writer's House website:

Milo's Garden, Pages 26 & 27

Here's another spread from Milo's Garden, a picture book I'm working on. In this scene, Milo is camped out in his garden and is surrounded by a group of mischievous creatures that snuck in while he was sleeping.

I painted a X on the back to keep the paper from curling


 


The final!
