Perusing my computer files , I ran across some photos I had taken whilst illustrating "The Journey of Bushky Bushybottom", a few years back. I am so glad I saved these!
The Drucilla P.Possum page...
These illustrations were done in Watercolor on 140lb cold press Fabriano Watercolor paper.
Deja Vu... I have met these sneaky little critters before..
As you can see by her Tartan and Love knot, Drucilla is a Scottish Possum... hmmm, I wonder, do they even HAVE Possums in Scotland?
Well, no matter, I like Scottish folk, and this book includes an audio CD which I narrated, and I did use a Scottish accent to read her lines.
Here was the development of the Crow Chums painting.
The two Crow Chums, Crusty and Icky.... "were lookin' for trouble"
And they found it.
This is what happens when you try to steal from the Honeybee Community.
Just ask the Crow Chums.
And Sir Percival...
Because I paint right on top of my detailed drawings, I take dozens and dozens of photographs to capture the pencil work forever, for my own records.
You may recognize the lovely Trudy Webbytoes?
Or the 3 little Bushkys?
Seeing these makes me very anxious to get back to work on a book.
3 more art shows to go and I am done for several months! HURRAH!!!
Have a wonderful week!
