Book Cover!

I'm doing illustrations for a children's book that my Grandfather wrote as a favor to my mom. Not my normal "cup of tea", but it gave me an excuse to break out the paints. I'm going for a old, somewhat classic "storybook" sort of feel. Kinda retro without looking like the 50's modernist stuff that I like so much. I have some black and white's to do for the interior still. The cover features "jumpy" the jumping horse and "taco" the flying dog (part of the reason his ear's are so big).

And since its been a while since I said so, fuck you, Microsoft.

Wow! You've really got that slightly-dark kiddie's book style down. I think you should have tackled "Diggery" in this style. We'd all be millionaires by now!
