This illustration was done to illustrate a rhyme about mice living in a cracked egg. I got my hands sticky investigating exactly what a cracked egg with yoke spilling out looks like and did a lot of pencil studies before feeling I had got it just right. As always Bertie the Rabbit makes an appearance - this time as either a chicken-thief, or a chicken-rescuer!
This is a vignette illustration from the Spelling Magic series. I painted this oil on board. I wanted a pure white background so that it would just sit on the whiteness of the page, however, I found that no matter how much white paint I put on I still had to go into photoshop and cut it out to get the background to be pure white. A labour of love.
See the former things have taken place, and new things I declare. Before they spring into being I announce them to you. Isaiah 42:9 I'm looking back on all the good things God has done for me in 2007 and also looking forward to the new things He will do in 2008. For me it's a time of seeking God to find out what He wants for me in 2008 so that I can line myself up directly with His will and do and be all that He desires.
Here is another Spelling Magic illustration for good measure. Crocodile dinner!
