Inspiration for Ozma

Jared Davis asked me if I wanted to do a dedication for our upcoming book Outsiders from Oz. I had to think about who I wanted to dedicate the book to because there are so many to choose. I finally decided to choose Georginna Trujillo, who is the inspiration on how I want my version of Ozma to look like. She is my childhood best friend, the girl next door, and one of the few people in this world I can truly say that I love.

I have been working on a project with Jared Davis and this is an illustration he wanted me to do. There is an inside joke with the paintings and the initials N.H from the first book I illustrated.

Unused Oz Illustrations

Sometimes I'm asked to work on a project for someone that ultimately gets shelved. Here are some pictures I  did for a story that got cut from the project. If you have an idea what these pictures were for, please keep it quiet for right now.

Guardian of the Magic Muffin Tree

So I'm cleaning out my cabinet and I came across some pictures that I never finished or were not used for some reason. I thought it would be nice to put up some of the pictures. Here is a picture from "The Hidden Valley of Oz" I did of the Guardian of the Magic Muffin Tree. For some reason I never finished it. I thought it would be interesting just to show the pencils.
