Craft pages


Here are a couple of craft ideas I illustrated as samples for a possible assignment. They’re projects we made in preschool, so I thought I would share them. Enjoy.


The Diabetic Camper


I was recently asked to create a blog banner for The Diabetic Camper – a blog by our Boyscout Scoutmaster, Dave Hennesey. He wanted some type of camper made from either a insulin syringe/bottle or something diabetic-related. My sketch of the bottle guy looked more like a marshmallow on a stick (also very “camperish” but not diabetic). So, we came up with “Blood drop dude” who is happily camping in the woods. I gave him a beard to look like Dave, and then did a version of Dave with a normal head & healthy complexion – just in case the blood drop dude confused his blog readers.

Dave the blood drop dude won out. 🙂

Take a visit over there for all sorts of fun info. Dave’s a hoot. 🙂

Tomie dePaola contest blog


Some of my FB friends put together a blog with their entries into the Tomie dePaola contest I mentioned in my last post. I’ve heard there were over 300 entries this year (last year there were around 150), but here are some amazing illustrations from hardworking illustrators. I’m proud to be part of this group. Good luck everyone!! Winners will be announced soon. Click on the big acorn on the right side of my blog to get to the gallery.
