Nerdy Storybook Print: No, Deadpool!

I’ve added a new print to my Nerdy Storybook Covers series:

deadpool

This is based on one of my favorite books to read to my sons when they were little, No, David! It might be a little too gruesome, but there might be an audience for it. We’ll see. I hope to have some for sale if I get approved for a table at FanX in March (crossing fingers).

Sketch cards: I hate winter

I think spring needs to come the day after Christmas, but no, we have to wait for 2-3 more months for the cold and depression to beat us down for a while so we can appreciate springtime or something.

Anyway, last week I fought back by drawing some ice and cold-based characters:

Mr. Freeze

Iceman!

Cute lil Jack Frost

And Killer Frost because The Flash is the best comic book show on TV right  now.

Hope you all can stick it out through the rest of winter, unless you live in Hawaii or California because I hate you.

Review: Little Bot and Sparrow

littlebot

I’ve been a huge fan of Jake Parker for several years. He is a talented illustrator who shares his wisdom freely. He was a presenter at last year’s Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators conference, and I got to see some of his process for creating this great new children’s book, Little Bot and Sparrow.

This is a beautiful book with a humorous and touching story about a robot who befriends a curious little bird. They learn about their similarities and differences, and it actually has kind of a bittersweet ending that teaches kids how to handle goodbyes. The illustrations are gorgeous enough to spend quite a bit of time devouring. I bought a copy for some of my nephews & niece; I hope they have as much fun reading it as I did.
