Here are a few more retired illustrations now archived. Look for more archived illustrations to come...

Mortimer loved to sky dive. I always thought this was an interesting perspective: the viewpoint of the sky diver as the plane recedes into the distance.
From Charlie Crackers and the Big Bugs of Summer. This is one of my absolute favorite images, although it may be terrifying for a 5 year old.
Wynken, Blynken and Nod- I'm a big fan of Maxfield Parish. This painting was an attempt to get those magnificent Maxfield Parish clouds and deep sky blue.

Saying goodbye to old friends. I'm really just storing the originals in my studio flat files for exhibition later on. However, when I do look on these 20+ year old illustrations, it makes me think about where I was at the time and how far I've come. Still, it's fun to look at them again. I hope you feel the same!

This contraption was created by Mr. Clatterford to get rid of some rowdy gophers that have invaded his yard. (Illustration: acrylic and colored pencil)
Mrs. Clatterford, on the other hand, tries to help Tulip get away from the runaway hose. (Illustration: acrylic and colored pencil)
Owl and the Pussy Cat went to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat. Surpised to discover that this nonsensical rhyme was written by Edward Lear. That makes sense! (Illustration: acrylic and colored pencil)
Look for more archived illustrations in the coming days...
