A new children’s book I am illustrating for Yael. I love designing the character and the background scenes for this book. 🙂
Jonathan woke up one morning and decided to do something different that day even if it’s unconventional. His parents loved him for it.
Written by Dale Macy, Jonathan Pumpkin One Sock Off and One Sock on, is a tender and lovely story enjoyed by kids and adults. Everyone who read the book fell in love with the adorable Jonathan Pumpkin.
I feel alive. Filled with passion. All day long. All week long. All I have been thinking about are lines, values and colors. I got five canvasses all primed and prepped. Sketches in each one, raw and waiting for dabs of paint. I am ready to lose myself again for a few days. How glorious.

This is the first illustration I submitted ( a commissioned work by the founder) for the website of Journey Beyond Travel, a travel tour company in Morocco. They liked it but decided it is too kiddish for their website. Below is the revised illustration I sent them which they approved and posted on their website. http://www.journeybeyondtravel.com/news/morocco-travel/santa-claus-morocco.html
