I'm gonna be in New York all next week to attend a show at the Society of Illustrators which is is showing art from a selection of children's book illustrators who were published this year. A book I illustrated got in the show and I figured it would be a good opportunity for me to meet and greet with a bunch of attending art directors

blah blah blah.... ANYWAY, this was a piece I whipped up yesterday as a promo card. I'm thinking I might like to do a whole series of tall tale heroes.

wow.. I 'm totally with Blom on this one.
This is one of the best pieces I've seen from you, mainly because of the colors. They have such uniformity and gave such a feeling of peace, which is how I see Paul Bunyan... that big giant guy, with is blue Ox that are just gentle people... or am I totally wrong? They did fight at some point, didn't they?

Thanks everyone
