My pages in Aya's Moleskine

My completion of Aya's half page:

The little sparrow is based off one that my girlfriend rescued off the street last spring that we hand-fed and raised and eventually released. It would ride around on my head, or on the back of her pet dove.

Two full-page spreads:

Too big to fit the whole thing on the scanner so I had to stitch them together (poorly).

Finally, the half-page for Ellen to complete, and I'm ready to mail it along.

Wow, lovely. They really look like fantastic (as in fantasy) landscapes. The half page looks really fun to work on. And I adore that baby sparrow - I can almost hear him from that illustration.

WOW! These are amazing. That baby sparrow is too too cool. And the details on everything are super.

I raised a baby squirrel this year, and released it. But I don't think I could draw as good a picture of it as this.

I'm sorry to say I am almost surely going to be late this time. Was away, and now lawyers and out of town company.

Fabulous. The abstract landscapes invite exploration! But I especially can't get over how well your sparrow illo matches Aya's style. Master of Imitation, you!

Love the bird story. I would coo with delight to see a baby sparrow riding on a dove's back. Will you consider that image for my book, pleeeeeease?
