I’ve been working hard to finish sketches for my daughter Evelyn’s book, Evelyn and the Dinosaur Egg. This one is a portrait of her just as Outdoor Things was a portrait of Dillon. When sketches are complete, I’ll select two images to complete as paintings and then assemble the book dummy! I enjoyed working on this project. To me it captures Evelyn’s imagination and creativity and how well she adapts when there is a change in plans! The books I wrote and illustrated for both kids are to me a kind of children’s magical realism, where fantastic things happen despite the ordinary surroundings.
