A new book is out! Self-published by Betty Davis and written by her daughter Summer Davis, this is a children's short-story/poem about a strange neighborwho comes to help a sick friend with a special stew.
Illustrating this book was a great experience in a couple of ways. First, this story is meant to be humorous. For me, that's challenging because most of my work tends to be realist and serious. So it was fun pushing my work to have a humorous element while not getting too cartoony.
The second creative aspect of this project is that we introduced a goose character through the illustrations only. In other words, the text is telling one story and the illustrations are telling a complimentary story. This goose has no idea what he's getting himself into.
