Suave Robin!

Been super busy at casa bone. Of which I am very glad, I must say. Today's little job is for a publisher of children's books. It's about a little girl and her creative writing assignment!

I've been checking out Steve Lambe's blog which is full of his wonderful design work. Guys like him and Jose Agreda make me want to work even harder to produce illustrations that have character and thoughtful design. I've still got a long way to go, baby!

Raising Belle!

In late November 2005 Dark Horse releases another Jingle Belle adventure. This is the first page of my three page story, concocted by Paul (almost) especially for me! (We were gabbing on the phone when the story came to him.)

As you can maybe tell Santa and family are attending the annual White House tree lighting ceremony. I played around a little with Jing's standard outfit, with Paul's blessing. I think by this time she's well enough known that a simple costume change doesn't render her unrecognizable.

Also in the book is some terrific art by Jose Garibaldi and Stephanie Gladden.

Check this out for an incredible drawing by Stephanie (scroll down to the October 19th entry). Also on that page, Oct. 26th entry, is the drawing I did for Paul's wedding invite. He recently married the lovely and magical Misty!

I'm all out of adjectives. Peace out.

ChickaDEE and Me!

In this month's ChickaDEE Magazine (available at most fine book stores and a few crummy ones...and quite possibly only in Canada) there is a four page story by me (pencils), myself (inks) and I (colours).

It is the story of a little girl falling and breaking her arm. In the printed images there is accompanying text but I thought I might just put up the stuff I did!

This being a children's magazine I had to make sure the little girl was wearing all the suitable safety gear. I think it's kinda funny that even though she's wearing wrist guards and elbow pads she still manages to break her arm...what sort of lesson is that teaching the kids!

Anyway, it was lots of fun and I hope I can do more stuff for ChickaDEE!
