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.
