Today's inspiration comes from Australian artist Shaun Tan. He has written and illustrated several books including; Tales From Outer Suburbia, The Arrival, The Red Tree, and The Lost Thing. His work is so dreamy and beautiful, stunning and surreal. He's won a gazillion awards, and rightly so his work is very touching. You can learn more about Shaun and his projects here.

illustration friday is burning

I had hoped to make this weeks Illustration Friday a much more elaborate affair. I envisioned a scene complete with roaring fire and hungry campers, but I got swamped with custom work, so this lil guy will have to do!

magazine love

One of my illustrations is in the current issue of Literacyhead! (Vol. 1 Issue 24) Literacyhead is an online magazine which provides lessons for teaching literacy through art. You can read more about their mission here.

 My work is in the 'Visual Vocablulary' section, and can be seen here. It's at the bottom of the page, so be sure to scroll down!
