The Best Gifts – In Progress

I am currently working on the illustrations for a new edition of The Best Gifts by Marsha Skrypuch, the great Canadian author. It will be published by Fitzhenry and Whiteside in 2013.

There are many people in this book. Here is a little sneak peek at a few of them. Some of them are really tiny. I think I need to get out a magnifying glass soon. My eyes are starting to water.

  1. I enjoy seeing your works in progress. I have gifted some of your art to family and I very much treasure the print “with the luck of a rabbit” which I bought for my baby boy as the rabbit is one of his main totem animals. Congrats on the new book too!
