Paul and His Beast

I am excited to share a wonderful middle grade chapter book, Paul and His Beast. Written by Sarah Stup, the book is about a sixth grader with autism who is working hard to be successful in a regular middle school.  It's a great story and gives the reader very thoughtful insight into what it's like to have autism.  

I was honored to create the cover and interior illustrations for the book.  The photo above shows the printed book and I'm including some of the interior illustrations below.


Sarah Stup is an author with autism.  To read more about Sarah, her writings, visit her website at  Paul and His Beast is available through the site as well.

Inktober 2015: Drawings 30 and 31!

We made it!  Thanks for following along with my 2015 Inktober challenge.

During the month, I discovered a few things.  I found out that it was easier for me to come up with the ideas for 31 drawings than it was to find the time to complete them! And since there was no time to over-think what to do for each piece, I learned what I like to draw, what I draw easily, and what I want to work on.  I'm glad I participated.

Here are my last two drawings for Inktober 2015:
