School Days by Clarence Mathews and Deneen Mathews - Art Process for cover plus 2 b/w illustrations

Can you imagine a time without TV, cell phones, heat, running water and electricity? Take a trip with Jacob to a real place in time and experience School Days. Great FAMILY reading. A MUST HAVE for every child's library.
School Days narrates the life of young Jacob, an enthusiastic four-year old, who couldn't wait to turn six and attend school with his older brother and sisters. The story illustrates Jacob's school days both in the country and in the city.
The country school house was a little three room building, modestly furnished with the bare essentials. There was no electricity, no running water, and children walked miles just to get to school. When Jacob's family moved to the city, Jacob was excited to discover that his new home and the big city school were loaded with much more than he could imagine!

HeidiSongs 1-100 Children's Book

Here is a new book available at HeidiSongs that teaches kids to count to 100. I worked on this book earlier this year. It was outlined in Adobe Illustrator and colored in Photoshop.  This book allowed me to just be creative with few restraints.  It was one of my favorite ones to do this year.

The Energy Bus for Kids - Children's Book

Here are some samples of The Energy Bus for Kids that I illustrated written by Jon Gordon.  It is in stores now so I hope you go check it out.  I had a lot of fun illustrating this book back in March and April.  There are about 40 illustrated pages in it so I hope your kids have fun with it.

Recent work

Hello!  It has been a while.  Here are a couple samples out of the over 400 pages of illustrations I have done this summer.  My family and I just moved so it has been a while since my last update.  I have a new stack of illustrations 4 inches tall from August until October.
