Shepherd Boy

I’m working on some fun new things for children’s ministry!

Braveheart Part Two

Here’s something fun… back in 2014 I posted a little color sketch of William Wallace. Sergio Clemente from Spain just did a 3-d render of it and I think he did an excellent job!

The Hanging Judge

Here’s something I worked on last summer that was a lot of fun. It’s the first in a series of old west stories, THE HANGING JUDGE. When we were initially talking about the project, I suggested that the books should look like worn out old paperbacks that a cowboy might have pulled out of his saddlebag and that the interior pages should be similarly antique looking. The editors thought that was a pretty good idea and we were off and running. What a great bunch of people to work for!

Making A New Friend

I was a big fan of the old comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. I really liked the way Calvin’s world revolved around his imaginary tiger friend Hobbes.  

I decided it was time for me to make my own imaginary tiger friend, so I went to the fabric store, grabbed black, orange and white fleece, and asked for a half yard of each. The girl looked at my selection of materials and said, “making something for halloween?” and I said “uhm… maybe.” Then I took my cut fabric to the register to pay for it and the lady there said, “making something for halloween?”

…so Hobbes and I are planning to go trick or treating together next halloween!!

Theodore Bump

One of the very first storybook jobs I ever got was a two book series about a little boy called Theodore Bump. Several decades later the author contacted me and asked if I would be interested in doing a third Theodore Bump book… absolutely! I just got an advance copy of the finished book.

Dewport Guard

I’ve been known to play a game or two on my phone when no one is looking. I’ve also been known to draw the characters in the games that I am playing on my phone when no one is looking. This is Gillie The Cook, a former pirate who is currently the leader of the Dewport Guard. 

I did this on an iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil and Procreate.

Therapy Bear

The sign in the fabric store said, “crafting is cheaper that therapy”… so here’s my latest therapy session.
