I went to my home town to help a very good friend, Miss Amanda Crary, paint a 44ft canvas for the theatre troupe we were both raised in. They're doing their annual summer musical and this summer it's Brigadoon, which takes place mostly in Scotland. So Amanda and I had the wonderful honor of painting the Scottish highlands. Here are some awesome process photos taken by me, Amanda, Pam, Tarah and maybe a few others...

Another awesome project that has been filling my time is doing freelance illustrations for the upcoming book Backyard Biology by Nomad Press. There have been a lot of fun illustrations with that so far, but here are some early pencils of two of my favorites:
Until next time, faithful readers!
