These are a few of the illustrations I have finished and edited for my childrens book I wrote entitled "Captain Magee What Do You See?"
I am working on getting funds to self publish this book... I think It could very well be on shelves in the near future... I am very close to finishing illustrating it and I have really high hopes for this project.
These are posters I just recently finished for a local Birmingham, Al childrens book author by the name of Rita J Collins.
The series is titled "The Eensy Weensy Science" series... The series is a set of poems set to the ryhming sceme of "The Itsy Bitsy Spider".... Each poem shows the development of a plant or animal from birth to adulthood.
There are limited prints for sale of each.. Not sure how many will be in the entire series but these are the first three...There are plans for these posters to be distributed to schools for classrooms and libraries. So I am keeping my fingers crossed and maybe these posters will be seen in elementary schools around the country. So pick up a limited print signed by myself and Rita before they sell out.... Limited to 100 prints of each poster... They are 25 a piece or 60 for the first set of 3.
This is an illustration I recently finished and It came out beautifly... It is titled "No turning back now!"... I am working on a back story for it and I have been doing a seiries of kind of creepy pen and ink and water colors and I am considering maybe writing stories to each illustration and making a kind of book of ghost stories. I think It would be a very fun project. So keep on the lookout for that and many others!
In 1977 a man named Nobuhiko Obayashi released a film by the name "Hausu"( Also known as "House")... It was recently released in America through Janus Films and The Criterion Collection (Which I personally am madly in love with this collection). "House" is a psychedelic ghost tale that I fell in love with not even 10 minutes into... visually it is perfect and the imagery Obayashi has assembled in this film is far ahead of his time.... I can not put into words how much I love this movie so I created my very own "House" poster in honor of Obayashi's great feat. The poster is below and I have added some clips and the Criterion Cover above... Which was created by one of my favorite graphic design artist Sam Smith here is a link to his blog http://samsmyth.blogspot.com/ .
But here is my poster and I will have 11 x 17 prints for sale of this. Go spend a few hours and clear your mind and watch this movie... The visuals will change your life and you will have a new favorite on your list without a doubt. Enjoy
