Earlier this year, I was hired by Oxford University Press to illustrate three two-page spreads for the new edition of their Illustrated Children’s Dictionary. Basically, I was to update existing scenes done by a different artist from the previous edition. Using the same general layout, I was to make them more realistic, update the technology and introduce characters used throughout the book. This was a very fun project… I enjoy illustrating detailed scenes like this and I had a blast working with Oxford.

Wow, it’s been a busy year. So busy, it’s been months since I’ve updated. Here’s a train I illustrated for a line of cutout vinyl wall graphics. These were done in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

Another interesting archaeological reconstruction project, this time for archaeologist Deni J. Seymour’s forthcoming book about the Sobaipuri O’odham people of Southern Arizona. This is a partial reconstruction of an actual site along the San Pedro river, around 1770, looking East across the river toward the Dragoon Mountains.
