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.

Puffy Sticker Designs

     Here are some sticker designs I did for Red Star Holdings in China. I made these last year around Christmas time. 
     I just got some in the mail as stickers so maybe you will see them in stores sometime. They are designed to be those puffy stickers. 
     Also, I designed the backgrounds for the stickers. All of this was done in Adobe Illustrator.

SuperFlowers Comic

These are comic panels I did to promote an online flower ordering website opening soon.  There is destruction, mayhem, and lots of online flower ordering that saves the day!  I enjoyed working in a quick and loose style (but still outlined with ink)

Illustrated DVD Cover

This is my first illustrated DVD cover by DigiView Entertainment. It has 4 episodes on it. 1 episode is about 4 ants (Hence the bugs in the title and in the boat) but the other 3 are about a wolf, fox, and chickens (Hence having them at the front) Little weird. I know.

I am happy at how it turned out. The layout on the back may or may not be finished completely.  It is all in vector with Adobe Illustrator. I wanted to try doing something like the kid's board game illustrations out in stores. I think these DVDs will be at Wal-Mart, Dollar General, and other stores that sell DVDs for about $1 or so.

Hidden Object Picture

Here is a Hidden Objects illustration of Paul speaking in the marketplace. I did this last August for David C. Cook publishing. It was a hard working all the objects into the picture without being too obvious. See if you can find these objects - key, octopus, seal, spoon, bell, cupcake, hairbrush, carrot, mitten, roller skate, and snake. I think that is all of them.

Here is the sketch for it. I had to change some things, but I think this is one of the biggest crowd scenes I have done cartoon/realistic style.

It's a Zoo out there!

Hey everone! Here are a couple illustrations I did last year for some zoo animals. Admission is free, but please leave a tip for the zoo keepers. They work hard. Why do the monkeys have a red chair?

I Hate Spiders - Book

Just finished this book, I Hate Spiders, with an extreme amount of spiders and a lot of bright colors. To celebrate finishing this book, I was able to catch up on sleep. Now on to other stuff.
