"Balphabet" 4

Here is a page with a few bat letters. I really enjoyed illustrating these. I like the contrast between, the pages with one large illustration and the pages with lots of little ones. Falconer does this very well in his Olivia books.

"Balphabet" 2

Here is another illustration from "Balphabet."

I've been busy working on a children's book entitled "Balphabet" these past weeks. It's about a girl, her bat, and their love of letters.

Sometimes it's hard to reconcile all my artist selves. I am a painter, an illustrator, and a designer. And when I'm not busy trying to disown my "commercial" art self, I can see the blessings of all my training.
