Nature Recycles by Michelle Lord






To say this year has been busy is an understatement. I'm quickly wrapping up illustrations for Nature Recycles by  Michelle Lord, published by Sylvan Dell Publishing. Wish I was quicker, five more spreads to illustrate, but it makes it more doable as I really like the story. I'm currently working on the spread which focuses on Asian elephants and how they recycle. I'll post it and the others as I get further along. But wanted to mention Asian elephants because that's where I'm heading in a couple of weeks - Bangkok Thailand! My husband, Andy Brown is working there for most of the summer, creating communication centers in that area so I'm excited to visit and see another part of the world I've never experienced. When I come back I'm starting a new book about dinosaurs. More about that one later.
Here's two additional images I cropped from Nature Recycles. Three more to go and I leave for Bangkok in just over a week. Lots to do before I go. Also wanted to add "Happy Memorial Day!", especially to my son, Evan and all his Navy friends.
So here's two more cropped images. I'm working on the last one and leave late tomorrow - will I finish before I go? Or am I destined to always carry work along on my vacation?

Appreciate that Deb! It's hard to look at the art so tiny and without the copy. It all comes together with Michelle's words.
