"Infinity"... or "The night cat caught a shooting star"

The moon and a shooting star. How far does the star fly? Infinitely!

Also a cat, just for fun.

I got the okay to show some art from "Zishe the Strongman", the second picture book illustrated by yours truly and coming out next Fall through Kar-Ben Publishing. So here is a scene from the book, when Zishe coming from Poland arrives in America, his reputation having arrived before him.

A big welcome from the big apple!

...And while we're on the topic, here is a nice 'welcome' spread from "Meet the Howler's", my other book coming out next year, about howler monkeys. It will be released in Spring 2010 from Charlesbridge, so be shure to pick up your copy of each book!!

Well, this is one Illustration Friday topic I have many pieces for. As some of you know, and some of you will find out, I recently finished illustrating a book for Kar-Ben publishing about a real life strongman from the early 1900's. It was lots of fun to do and is coming out fall of 2010.

I'm not sure I should be posting any of the art from the book just yet, but what the heck, above are a couple sneak previews!

Below are just a few other "strong" images. Strongmen are just so fun to draw ( I think it's the mustache)!
