The Alphabet

Hookay, so here's the deal. I have developed and idea to illustrate the alphabet using animal parts as letters (A is for Anchovy, B is Barracuda, etc.) BUT, my wish for this book is to have the letters not be readily apparent; you have to work to find them. AND, I want full-view paintings where the entire animal and it's habitat are revealed, and then the following page will reveal the close-ups of the letter. Good, no? 

Here's some thumbnails of what I'm talking about...







  1. These watercolor/ink combos come out pretty cool. I saw your varnished Angler Fish candle holder at school. That's really an illustration you need to see up close. Great work.
