from felt to illustration – a walk through this creative process

Here is the original felted piece for Henny Penny. It is needlefelted onto flat felt from a sketch.
Here is Henny after my first foray into Painter 12 (gotta say I LOVE this program) with my teensy WACOM tablet.
Then I thought I’d see what happened when I put Henny on an illustration I painted previously – just to see how it looked. 


More Dinosaurs! More Skunks… and Sacré-Coeur Basilica with Platypus.

Cover for my new book by Neil Griffiths – coming later this year.
Tooter, from Tooter’s Stinky Wish, by Brian Cretney, published by Fitzhenry and Whiteside, now available for pre-order!
Sacré-Coeur Basilica by my 5-year old son who is obsessed with Parisian architecture, but not the modern stuff – the old stuff. We are working on a book together called The Platypus in Paris. I get to draw the platypus.
