Ruff Construction


The first illustration that I did that received some notoriety was way back in 1st grade. We were instructed to draw something on a 18x24 inch piece of construction paper that would eventually be laminated and used as a nap mat (AKA-teacher needs a break mat.) My subject matter was Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel and although I can't remember what it exactly looked like, I do recall lots of classmates and adults complimenting it. So these images are sort of a homage to Mike Mulligan for me.

These are wonderful Scott. You managed to pick a favorite of all time. Virgina Lee Burton's books were always on our shelves and our kids, now grown still have copies in some form. Your newest version is delightful!
