illustrator & author

Portfolio
Over the past few years, I have been working digitally. I just don't want the illustrations to look digital. So I'm calling it "tradigital". I start out with a traditional pencil sketch which I scan in to Photoshop. Then I redraw it with a "pencil" and use a variety of "watercolor" brushes. One of the things that I like best about working digitally is that if I make a mistake I can just go back a step or two and I won't have totally ruined whatever I was working on!
Most Recent Work
In my earlier books, I used traditional watercolors, colored pencils, ink, crayons, acrylic paint, collage and pencils.
