doing it for the kids

These are some of the images I have done for an independent publisher, "Universal Write" a while back.
I was finally given approval to show them off, so here are three images from a children's book called "BumbleBee Longhorn Needle". The story is essentially a coming of age story about a butterfly who is a bully because he is jealous and unhappy.

This book is part of a project where Universal Write publishes students short stories so that they may become published authors early on in heir lives. There are two more books in the series I have done illustration for and once I am given permission I will post some shot from those as well.

Till the next time,

Preparing Lasagna

So yesterday I got home and made lasagna, which I have been craving for for months. Now that its cold, I feel I can properly enjoy it.

So after feeling accomplished with how my dinner came out I figured it's time to patch up some old projects I've been anxious to finish.

I started this one back in February and finally laid down the final colors on a full stomach and The Colbert Report. Looking at it now, I want to do another with a brighter finish to it.

Till the next post,

Making Sweet Tea

After a long break I'm back to breathe life into this blog. Here's a sketch of a portrait I'm going to paint of my little sister. This will be a good warm up before start my "Totally Badass Art Competition" entry.
