4th of July '19 -- A Marching Band!

Sometimes it’s fun to play with old images. I experimented with a washy, watercolor style a number of years ago. I still like many of the pieces I did. This one seemed fitting for an Independence Day illustration, so I made it into a pattern. Happy 4th of July, everybody!

Something New! Dragon Boat Race Illustration

I created this illustration for “A Boat Race” for Chirp magazine June ‘19 issue. This fun magazine spread is both informative AND fun! There are several puzzles and games to play as you learn (Kids as well as adults!) I went with line art for this, since I had to get 20 people in each boat—plus the people on the side watching and waving for their favorite dragon boat! See if you can solve the puzzles!

Something New! Magazine Spread: Kids' Orchestra

Something new for Click magazine’s March 2019 “Music” issue—A full-blown kids orchestra. I played the trombone myself so it was fun to revisit drawing trombones, as well as other instruments. I hope the kids learn a lot from this article, and find they want to learn to play an instrument themselves! Images from the spread are below.
