The last page of "Starry Nights" a "Nightglow board book" I wrote & Illustrated, seems to be the perfect Midsummer's Night Dream piece for Illustration Friday. Here, my third Airedale "Raisin" guards her boy as she watches the man in the moon and fireflies glow. The moons face is only visible in the book with the lights out.

Here is my art table in the middle of my little 4x6 creation.

I started thinking about this piece on Friday as soon as the subject Swept was announced. It didn't come out like I pictured it in my head so I'll start a re-due tomorrow. But for I.F. it's a go.

This piece is from a Scholastic book "I Am an Apple". When I present my work at school and library talks, I always tell the kids how much I enjoy using Silhouettes. I explain how they are simple shadowy shapes that tell a story. That's why I've chosen this piece for "Shadow".
I have listed this piece in my Etsy Shop with more information.
This is a published piece from "Jack and the Beanstalk". One of several stories from Dorling Kindersley's "P.B. Bears Favorite bedtime stories". Here we see the giant sleeping as clever jack nabs a couple coins to bring home to his mum. I must say I always felt a little bad for the giant losing all his stuff to Jack. But I guess he was a pretty mean guy.
