This is an image I illustrated and designed as a header for a piece about volunteering. The background incorporates a close-up photo I took of a section of a very old painting. I wanted the brush strokes to add a texture to the piece to give it a more hands-on feel (which is just what volunteering is!).
It's been a while since my last update because I've been working on finishing a vocabulary book for Flash Kids/Sterling. I thought I'd show off pieces of some of the illustrations for this very interesting book.
There's a dragon, Dubai's tallest building in the world (the Burj Khalifa), shoes, a sunset, the U.S. Capitol Building, Minnesota, a BLT sandwich, Albert Einstein and 134 other illustrations!
