spotty eddie visit percÚ rock quebec baby turtle turtles sketch illustration children's book

Thought it would be fun to share a few of the finished pencil illustrations for Spotty & Eddie’s latest adventure. I’ve really enjoyed taking my time with these illustrations… the remaining illustrations will be completed by December 2009. Once I’m finished drawing all the illustrations I will go in and tint them with colour digitally in Photoshop. I’ll show a step-by-step example of Spotty & Eddie when I’m at that stage… but if you’re curious as to how to colour pencil illustrations in Photoshop, you can check out my tutorial.

A Surprise Moo

imagezoo cows grazing farm tv tray

It was a weird feeling walking through Kim Wang’s grocery shop at the Adelaide Central Markets this morning, and having my eye caught by something familiar but had never seen before… a tv tray with my illustration on it! I did this cows grazing illustration for a Seasons collection over at ImageZoo where it is available royalty free. One of the funny things about selling your images royalty free is that you don’t know what applications your illustrations may be used for. Anyhoo, suppressing the urge to tell strangers that I painted the illustration on this tv tray, I walked out having purchased four of them. Not exactly sure what I’ll do with cow coffee trays, but I had to buy them on principle :)
