I’m currently illustrating a new book. The publisher has graciously agreed to allow me to share a few snippets of it, so here’s a small glimpse. The book is scheduled for release in the fall and once we are past the confidentiality stage of this process, I will be able to disclose more information about it.
It’s been a while since we last checked in with Big Chief Tablet and his rambunctious band of TuhTONKa Fire Engines. Here we see DancesWithWeasels checking for tornadoes in Oklahoma. The last tornado that rolled through blew away all the milk cows… it was an udder disaster.
A few weeks ago, I ran across a replay of the Cowboys And Aliens movie on TV. (Spoiler Alert: the movie contains cowboys, indians and ALIENS). In the opening scene, a really interesting looking cowboy with a stove pipe hat rides into the story. Thinking he was a really unique character, I quickly sketched him and later that weekend I scratched some color onto my drawing.
