Fall Reads Cover

Here is a recent illustration I did for the Books Section of Newsday announcing recommended reading for the  Fall.

Unfortunately the page ended up being on a black and white spread so the illustration ran as seen below.  Next to the B&W cover are some of the preliminary squirrel sketches I did.  I wasn’t quite sure where I was going with the puffed out cheeks , they just reminded me of a squirrel. He looks like he’s looking for a place to spit something out.  The tail with a body wave still looks interesting to me , I just think it draws your attention away from the books.  Gary Rogers was the art director on the piece.
