Illustration Friday: Jungle


A dip into the archives for this one... This image was created for the Seattle Public Library Summer Reading Program, circa 2001. A great collaborative project for me and one of my very first official freelance illustration assignments :) A reading log and sticker sheet were also created to accompany this piece. While certainly not the first time, it was fantastic that a city library system wanted to generate completely original artwork for it's summer programing - and super fun for me to work on as well.

Gorgeous work! I love the variety and detail of the foliage, and the wonderfully rendered animals! I like their different expressions, especially the curious giraffe. The open space in the middle with the little elphant in the pool is perfect...it certainly sends the message that reading is fun for all ages.

I love this piece. So expressive and fun. I really like how you handled the foilage. I wasn't too pleased how my foilage turned out, so it was great to see yours.
