12 images and what they taught me

Rather than organize my portfolio by style or topic, I thought I’d see how it works if I arrange it by lessons learned. These images are from the following books and projects:

SUPER JUMBO, Penguin Random House, 2016
ONE DAY THE END, Boyds Mills Press, 2015
PUPPY, PUPPY, PUPPY, Boyds Mills Press, 2017
FLASHLIGHT NIGHT, Boyds Mills Press, 2017
THE TALON TRILOGY, Publishing rights available through Adams Literary
GARBAGE ISLAND, Boyds Mills Press, 2018

From SUPER JUMBO, Penguin Random House, 2016

SUPER JUMBO taught me to find the perfect moment right before ‘it’ happens.

From ONE DAY THE END, Boyds Mills Press 2015

ONE DAY, THE END made me learn to write (and draw) between the lines.

From PUPPY, PUPPY, PUPPY, Boyds Mills Press 2017

PUPPY, PUPPY, PUPPY showed me that all shades of love look great in sci-fi pajamas.

From FLASHLIGHT NIGHT, Boyds Mills Press 2017

FLASHLIGHT NIGHT taught me that a book can be a doorway for the artist, too.

From THE TALON TRILOGY, publishing rights available through Adams Literary

THE TALON TRILOGY (in progress) pushes me to find the unexpected within the unexpected.

From GARBAGE ISLAND Book 1, Boyds Mills Press 2018

And last but not least, GARBAGE ISLAND is making sure I loosen up and go fishing once in a while. (Because life is short, and I swear it counts as research.)
