PIGNIC Sketches!

I had a tremendous amount of fun writing and illustrating PIGNIC. Here's a peek behind the scenes...

One of a million pig character sketches.

A sample from the initial thumbnail layout.

The dummy consisted of very small sketches drawn with Derwent Inktense pencils which are 
water-soluble. I liked the results so much that I used the same pencils for the final art.

You can find a copy of PIGNIC at your local bookstore or here.

The official PIGNIC launch party will be at Children's Book World on Saturday, June 2nd at 1 pm!

My latest picture book as both author and illustrator is finally here!! This may be the youngest book I've done and I'm very proud of it. It was a joy to make from beginning to end.

Here are some nice reviews:

I'll be posting sketches and more soon. Happy Spring!
