Earlier in my career, I did a variety of freelance
illustration. Some of this work can be seen in my portfolio.
This area includes the work I just do for myself - the
non-professional work. Mostly sketches from trips I've taken, but
it might also include casual things like classroom demos, etc.
In response to requests, I've posted a Java applet animation
showing the process I went through painting "Green
Things" from my book The Stone Fey.
Be patient, on slower connections, it takes a minute to load.
Here are answers to the most frequently asked
questions about what I do. If your questions relate to
children's books, I have another FAQ here.
