enough with the fairy tales already!

I tend to read and illustrate many western fables, such as the Grimm Brothers tales. So I decided it was time for ethnic stories from different parts of the world. Starting with an Inuit fable. So to fully understand the cutlure I read an awesome book by Peter Freuchen, a westerner who went and lived with the eskimo peoples and wrote about it. I loved every page of it! So here is the first illustration from a seperate, inuit story.

my summer reading list continues....

My list of books 'to read' continues to grow in number, while I try to finish the ones I've already started. So like any illustrator who judges a book by its cover, I thought this one needed a make-over. So here is my version of the book "After the Ecstacy, the Laundry" by Jack Kornfield.
