Here's the final image I created for the children's poetry book, Chocolate Chips & Rocket Ships. The poem I illustrated is called Twilight. The Kickstarter page is in it's final days now and still needs a lot of help.

Rudy Cheeks

Something of a local celebrity in newspapers/radio/music, Rudy Cheeks's nick name reflects his surprisingly magenta skin tones. Amazing colors to try to capture.

I'm off to Evergreen, Colorado for the weekend where I'll be attending the opening of the Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibit of Traditional Oils. My painting, Ukulele, is included in the exhibit. If your in the Denver/Evergreen area come say hi and see the show!
