doggy city

I did this doggy city a while ago. I can't even remember what it was for. I think it was some kind of educational program thing.

cool gorilla uh?

hello freight train 2

doing this book brought back a lot of memories at my train table. Although my train table always included army guys and a Godzilla model.

hello freight train

Hello Freight Train was a design challenge. The text became a list of the car types and the layouts became very similar. I tried to add variety and subplot with the birds and poses of the characters.

here is the first and only art of an unwritten book. I've got an idea and a cover, that's how a lot of my books start out.

vinyl guy

A friend of mine left work last week. As a good-bye gift, we all got these little urban vinyl blanks and customized them. It was a pretty cool collection. I'll try to get pictures of the other ones.

hello fire truck 2

Concerned onlookers or curious disaster chasers?
Will Cat and Firedog have a future? Or will the pressures of cultural and species differences eventually tear them apart?
All's well that ends well, or so we think..

hello fire truck

I think "Hello Fire Truck" is my personal favorite in the series. It is full of drama and intrigue.
What was Cat doing? Is any one left in the house?
Yellow Dog was first on the scene and reported the fire, umm, rather suspicious.
It even has a race scene.

L is for lion, and lazy

I started this alphabet book and got distracted by things like work. I wanted to do a circus abc. Circus themes don't seem to be in favor now. I still like them.

my space

someone asked, this is where I work. I wish it was by an ocean or a mountain, but it's a basement in a suburban Kansas City home.

hello series

I did a little series of books that featured animated vehicles. As a kid I had this book called Tootles the Taxi which I've always loved and inspired me when I started the Hello series.
