Milo's Garden, Pages 26 & 27

Here's another spread from Milo's Garden, a picture book I'm working on. In this scene, Milo is camped out in his garden and is surrounded by a group of mischievous creatures that snuck in while he was sleeping.

 I started this painting with a blue wash

I painted a X on the back to keep the paper from curling

Milo's Garden, Pages 2 & 3


At the beginning of this year, I started kicking around picture book ideas about dreams and nighttime. The ideas evolved into a 32 page wordless picture book I titled Milo's GardenThe book is about Milo, an aspiring gardener who attempts to grow a mysterious seed. But each night, a mischievous gang of strange, whimsical creatures clamber into his garden and muck things up.

Here are some process pictures for a double page spread I recently finished. I've been using acrylics and color pencil on watercolor paper.
