I’m excited to be attending the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators conference in New York for the first time! I’ve spent the past few months organizing my printed portfolio for the showcase, and creating a dummy book based on Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky” poem. I thought I would post some of the newer narrative illustration pieces I’ve done over the past few months here, as I add them to the portfolio section of this site. The first two are samples from Jabberwocky, and the three after that were created for the Folio Society’s illustration competition based on Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park.
And this guy here is Krampus. I didn’t include him has part of the portfolio for the children’s book convention, because he’s kind of scary, but this illustration was done for Faerie Magazine’s recent Winter issue.
