I've been busy making a portfolio of children's book work for about a month now. After I finished the "Dixie Trix" experiment, I was really driven to make more and see if I couldn't branch out into making illustrations for picture books. I had a lot of fun painting and drawing and have decided to tuck away the tablet for now. Here's a sample few images, go to my main site for more. Enjoy!

For those of you who don't know, kombucha is a pro-biotic, fermented tea brewed with sugar, yeast and healthy bacteria and is celebrated for its many beneficial properties. Thats the yeast and bacteria gettin' down in the first image by the way.
Kombucha Brooklyn to illustrate the book and thankfully the editor at Avery agreed that I'd make a good match. The book covers everything from brewing how-to to recipes and chemistry, to the drink's history and origins and contains about 60 illustrations. It made for a lot of diverse subject matter which is always nice in a project and I had loads of research to do. I also liked the challenge of making a how-to sequence look interesting and less clinical. So here is a small sample of the images... I'll post some more up after the book has been published.

My latest Illustration project (more on that later) involves A LOT of ink brush and ink drawings and thus, lots of brush cleaning. These two scraps are my favs so far. Makes me want to get a little looser in my actual work...
