About the Artwork

He Missed His Friends, Pencil, Watercolor and Gouache

Books, Pencil, Watercolor and Gouache

He Missed His Friends is from my debut picture book, Quackers, about a cat who thinks he's a duck. Since it's a book for younger readers, I chose to make the art cuter and softer than my typical illustration work, and the characters are mostly composed of simple shapes. The artwork for Books came about because I wanted to draw the glimpse of a little seaside town that is visible through the arch and had to come up with the rest of the piece to go along with it. I included some of my favorite things in this illustration: an air of mystery, a little European-style town, cats, and books. I put a pair of underwear in there, since kids think underwear is hilarious.
