Look what arrived yesterday! A whole box of the latest book I illustrated in partnership with author Gloria Snively, published by Heritage House! I’m so excited — the printing is beautiful, I really feel like they did justice to my paintings and drawings. And they smell good… ah, the sweet smell of fresh ink! I’ve also included some pictures of the other books. All are available for order on the Heritage House website.
Heres a few quick looks inside:
Almost every page has at least one illustration — for me, these coloured-pencil drawings were the most taxing to do, because they require lots of searching through reference to find enough detail to draw an accurate representative specimen of each type, and most times I had to use a handful of photos to create a whole creature. This is where all those photos I have been taking at aquariums and the seashore really come in handy! I also had to do that for the paintings (as well as finding backgrounds), but composing a painting is just more… well, fun!
And that’s it for the look through the new book. You can order it from the link in the first paragraph if you’d like to see more! Here are some reminders of the previous books, which are still available at the same site.
I’m super excited to have the addition of this book to Gloria’s and my growing collection! (Oh wait, did I say that already?) You can see some of the other illustrations from the previous books here, and three more from the colouring book here.
