The illustrations to follow were created for children's books, many for book covers that were written for young adult readers. Most of the images were made using traditional media: oils, acrylics, airbrush, colored pencils and watercolors. I have used a variety of media in my work, to arrive at a desired final look that met the demands of the market at the time. The mass market approach for many years was dominated by a realist tradition that was predominant in adult cover art, but soon became a desired look for children's books as well.
Some of the later work will reflect my adoption of digital media into my bag-of-tricks for image creation. I started to use digital media in my work in the early 1990's, where I was ahead of the curve, especially in publishing at that time.
