Some of my recent pieces. The top three are contributor portraits for the September-October 2016 issue of In Touch magazine. The storm scene is for the second volume of children’s stories which will be published this Fall. The cartoony dude was a doodle that got out of control and became a full-blown illustration.

NOT A DOODLE: It’s Here!!!!

Storybook of Gods Great Love

I posted a few teaser shots from this previously here, here, and here, and now the finished product is complete and on sale. “The Storybook of God’s Great Love” is an eighteen-story children’s book written by the incredibly gifted Laurin Greco, art directed by the equally über-talented Lisa Dyches, and illustrated by yours truly. It was a lot of fun working on this; I haven’t gotten to work on that many projects aimed at little readers.

It can be purchased online at the In Touch Ministries bookstore here.

Oh! And be on the lookout for Volume 2 next year! I’ll try to post some progress shots from that one, as well.
