I visited Mount Vernon a few weeks ago with my family and was immersed in the world of George Washington. Located near Alexandria, Virginia, Mount Vernon was the plantation home of the Washington family from as early as 1674 and was handed down through successive generations, including that of the first president of the United States of America. The estate is maintained well and includes the president’s home and gardens, as well as the tomb of George and Martha Washington. There is a museum on the grounds which includes a historical survey of the president’s life and artifacts from the estate.
I’ve redesigned my portfolio site and posted new work, including my Trucks series of watercolor paintings and a few of the games I’ve created for the Keats Foundation. The new format of my site includes bigger images and less text and I look forward to posting new work as I create it. Check it out now!
Children’s book illustrator Peter Brown offers a look at his drawing process for the creation of the book “Creepy Carrots!“. I like how he takes his pencil drawings and enlarges them, rather than the usual practice of shrinking them down. This adds texture and enhances flaws to give the drawings life.
