100th post

Well, in honor of my 100th blog post, I'm posting a sketch from the 2nd page of my current picture book "There's Always a Way, Annie McRae!" which is a sequel to my VERY FIRST picture book "Hip Hip Hooray for Annie McRae!". I'm working hard to finish it sooner than later. I'm trying out a new method to painting acrylics. I'll have to let you know about it IF it works the way I'm hoping. Watch for updates on that process to come.


  1. I still think the you should do a sequal named "hip hop horray for shanaynay mcrea. You might want to consider that one.

  2. I'll pass that on to Brad (the author). Very Funny!

  3. Lookin good. Looking forward to seeing more.
