These are 5 pages from my Olga book! I went on a painting frenzy recently....and actually I'm still going. The top one is the last page in the book...after Olga tucks Oliver in she goes to sleep in her house. I thought it was sweet. The second is in the beginning of the book.....Olga and Seymour were friends at the zoo and talked to each other..and sometimes got lattes. The bottom is one of Olga and Oliver's wonderful adventures at the crazy miniature golf wonderland. Comments always welcome, and appreciated!

I painted my last Seymour spread! yaaay! I only have a few spots to paint, and the whole book is done...minus type. The top image is an illustration for my independent study. It's an editorial on luxury campgrounds.

Olga and Seymour

Welcome back from the holidays! I hope everyone enjoyed their break. Here are some of the things I worked on...I did some sketching at the airport and some in my Willis book for fun, I painted four more pages of Seymour, and I started some studies on Olga. "Olga" is the second book that I'm working for thesis. The ostrich and her little friend Oliver enjoy the pleasures of the weekend. "Seymour" was about a typical school day (riding the yellow bus, show n tell, recess). I have lots of exciting things planned for Olga and Oliver. First I toyed with the idea of her house being underground, showing the "split earth" view. Everything in the main room is viewable like the pictures of her friends and family, flowers, and of course the Television she can just use the remote. The top two rooms are all she can lay her neck down on the mini bed at night. I was thinking about putting little umbrellas on the top view to block out any rainfall. Olga and Oliver also love playing cards in their fort! (That's what I used to do) Let me know what you think so far, thanks!!
