Some of my pre-work for Mars

This was some of the work I had to do before I could get my head around going to Mars.  Nasa's website was my primary source for concept images and theories on how they are planning to do this.

Pirates in my future

I've been spending a lot of time with this guy.  From outer space to underwater, I've gone lots of places this year.

Space Bingo

Here is a spread from the soon to be released "Hey-Ho To Mars We'll Go".  It is a scene where the astronauts have been in space a long time and are coping with the boredom until they arrive at Mars.  I had one of the Astronauts playing Space Bingo to pass the time.  Charlesbridge (the publisher) has asked me to create a set of bingo cards that will be part of the marketing promotion for the book.  We tried to keep the book plausible non-fiction.  That's why the alien wasn't checked off on my astronaut's card.

Out soon.

New book coming out soon.  Hey-Ho To Mars We'll Go! by Susan Lendroth.  It's a space age version of Farmer in the Dell.  It's fiction of course, but we wanted it to be as plausible as possible.  I grew up watching the Apollo missions, so this book fulfilled a few childhood aspirations.

Yay for Puffin!

Nothing Like A Puffin has been published in China.  It's always fun to see your work in other languages.

New story

A new story is in the works about some adventures in the wilderness of the basement.  Here is a campfire scene.
