Christmas Book Time!

For Christmas, I went to New York and visited Books of Wonder. Books of Wonder is probably one of my favorite stores of all time; it's a real treat to visit as an illustrator or a fan of children's books. I came back with really cool books (some of them signed). Tove Jansson is one of my favorite children's writers and illustrators, and I lived off of her books as a kid. She is whimsical and very Scandinavian, which is a nice change from some copycat American books. Books of Wonder had two of her children's books, so I had to buy them.

Good Morning

I wasn't sure which coffee I liked best, so I put them all up.

Amber Sketch

Messing around with more portrait sketches. Sorry Amber.

Unsavory Portraits

These are quick sketches that I scribbled into digitally. Sorry to Schuyler and Jai (especially Schuyler). I just loved that greenish skintone so I kept it. . .
