Who Was Sir Isaac Newton?

Penguin

Having just finished up another ‘Who was’ book for Penguin this week (the latest one is ‘What Were The Ten Commandments?’, available soon on Amazon), I thought I’d share a batch of illustrations from another of the books in this series that I completed a few years ago. This was the 6th book in this series that I did interior illustrations for, on Sir Isaac Newton. I’ve shared a few samples of these illustrations here on this site in the past, but this is the first time I am sharing every illustration from the book (80 or so, give or take). I’ll be posting samples from the next book, “Who Was Robert Ripley?” next month.

Here’s a piece I did for River Styx this afternoon for a bit of fiction in the next issue. More illustration samples to come later in the week.

 

A few weekend jobs

ChronicleHE, Dover

A few jobs that I worked on over the weekend. I’m still in the middle of the Ten Commandments book project for Penguin, but should be wrapping that one up next week. The job above was one for the Chronicle of Higher Education that I finished this morning, and below is another book cover for Dover’s ‘Evergreen Classics’ series of reprints, this one being a ‘two books in one’ edition of ‘Tom Sawyer Detective’ and ‘Tom Sawyer Abroad’. I’m also continuing work on my band’s upcoming CD release, which we are hoping to get out in early summer.

I’ve still got a few more coloring book pages to share from last year’s ‘Animals’ book, plus some samples from the newer ‘Beautiful Trees’ book. I’ll also be sharing another of my ‘Who Was’ books from a couple years ago. Stay tuned.

Spot Illustrations for New Book Project

Skyhorse Publishing

ColorSpotsWebBeen fairly busy the past several weeks, so I’ve been remiss in posting samples. These are a series of color spots that I did for an upcoming book for Skyhorse Publishing called “Is It Safe to Kiss Your Cat?” I also have several black and white cartoons for the same project to post, but I’ll wait until next week sometime.

Been busy with a few book projects, and I’m currently in the ‘changeover’ period between the two. Just finished up with 50 spot illustrations for an upcoming book (I’ll post samples later this week), and starting on 80 illustrations for another (which will be complete sometime next month). In the meantime, here’s a ‘short turnaround’ magazine illustration for the American Bar Association.
