a little, aloud

Some recent drawings... I have been asked to illustrate a small book of poems and excerpts from novels. The purpose of the book is to encourage adults who don't usually read at all to read out loud. I'm really glad to be a part of this project and will post more illustrations later. There are more and a stories behind them all!

The Lumber Room by Saki
At the End of the Line by Penny Feeny

The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry

Mary, I love these illustrations! You are so incredibly talented. I would love to get a copy of the book when it's done.

Oh, thank you Sherry. I will hopefully get a few copies and be able to give you one!
