Just this close to being finished with artwork for Daisylocks

Since I'm almost done with the art for Daisylocks I figure it's time to procrastinate a little before  finishing the last spread. So I'm posting some more images from the book.
Not enough room to spread out

Too busy and crowded

Daisy decides to look for some place better to put down roots.
And last but not least, I'm showing you the very first spread from Daisylocks as my last image on the blog - hope that makes sense. I'm not showing everything from the book but you get a good feel for how the book will look. And I won't be showing the final spread. You'll have to wait until Spring 2014 to see if Daisylocks finds a place that's "just right".

Thanks for taking a look, hope you enjoyed the art. It's always fun to collaborate on another book with Marianne Berkes.

Sneak peek of The Wild Prairie that Nature Built

The Wild Prairie that Nature Built by Marybeth Lorbiecki
(Click on the image for a full view)

Here's the first illustration for The Wild Prairie that Nature Built, a new picture book and app with a new publisher, at least new for me. The publisher is Dawn Publications and I've been a huge fan of their children's books for years.

 Marybeth Lorbiecki is the author and I wasn't familiar with her until reading her manuscript and now I'm a fan of hers as well.

I'll be posting more illustrations along the way. Look for it Fall 2014!
