New Year, New Work

These are some illustrations for a 3rd grade textbook on ancient North American civilizations. I didn't know much about the Moundbuilders, so it was neat to learn some about the people that left behind these really cool, kind of mysterious earthworks.

It seems some rust has accrued in my inner illustration machine, and I'm feeling motivated now to brush up on a bunch of stuff (anatomy, perspective, value contrast! cast shadows! reflections!) Mostly though, it just feels really incredible to be working, so yay for producing stuff!

WOw!!!!Awesome stuff! Very Graphic reads. As a kid, I looooooved the mayans! I thought they were so cool. I'm a little jealous of the kids who get to admire your art everyday in class! Congratulations on the sweet gig!

Those look great! I thought they might be for an illustrated version of the Book of Mormon.
