Galison/Mudpuppy commissioned this last year and released it this month. One side is colored by me and the other side is to be colored by you or your kids or friends.
This particular illustration was also just accepted into the 3×3 magazine children’s illustration annual, along with my #6 race car collage.

Space Puzzle for Mudpuppy

September 21st, 2009

15 x 10 inch puzzle for Mudpuppy
You may recall the Astronauts in Peril I posted during my recent month-long sojourn in Arkansas. This was a sketch for a puzzle I was drawing and designing for Galison/Mudpuppy. I’ve done quite a lot of work for Mudpuppy. In fact, over the last two or three years, the work for Mudpuppy has been my favorite in both the process and the results. So when Cynthia Matthews called and asked me to do a piece with aliens and planets and comets and stuff, I jumped on it.
I completed the puzzle last week. While it won’t be published for almost a year (June 2010), I am happy to be able to show it off now. The timing is nice, as I’m about to start working on a book for Hyperion about aliens and I’d not quite yet figured out how I want it to look. This is a good start.
Below are four smaller detail images showing the puzzle in more detail.

astronauts in peril

August 12th, 2009

I’m working on a new puzzle for MudPuppy that involves space: UFOs, aliens, comets, etc. These guys are outtakes from the sketches I’ve been working on. Nothing better than an astronaut in danger.

Space Vacation for Nickelodeon

May 7th, 2009

Last week I made this illustration for the July 2009 issue of Nickelodeon Magazine. The story is something along the lines of questions people wanted to ask. The question illustrated herein is “when will we take vacations in space?”
The answer, as we all know, is the year 2023. Probably sometime around late April.
And if you haven’t tried it already, you should spend a couple of days drawing rocket ships and planets like I did. It’s way fun.

Space Vacation

Update: here is the illustration in the magazine.
