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.

It won’t stop

So now this sketch card thing has become a mostly daily habit. This is pretty awesome, in my opinion. They’re relatively quick, and I am still finding time for other projects which I’ll post about soon. Here’s my most recent batch:

Sketch card mania

I’ve been steadily doodling since the new year started, and loving it.I did a few more Gravity Falls character sketch cards:

And maybe I was just feeling a little murdery today, but here’s a Red Skull with a smoking gun for you, too:

I’ve also been particularly busy with some freelance work. More on that tomorrow, maybe. Later!

Gravity Falls art: Mabel Pines

My kids and I have finally discovered Gravity Falls. It’s everything I love in a show: humor, mystery, adventure, and a great cast of unforgettable characters. I’ll probably be drawing more of these guys 🙂
