This is how we make a whole lot of the money that pays for the mortgage, dogfood, and all sorts of other unavoidable necessities. Fortunately, illustration remains by far my favorite line of work.

As ever, the drawing and lettering is all done by hand. Ironically enough, every 11 year old I know these days is jadedly proficient at photoshop and other "illustration" programs....so, it's probably too late (and unnecessary) for me to catch the wave-of-the-future.

In reply to the questions that I'm always asked.... yes, I do actually read the books I illustrate and, yes, you do get a free case of cookies when you draw cookie boxes for Whole Foods. At least, that's been my experience....
