POSTER from the 2012 series. The serious undercurrent to the zany fun is, that I encourage children to feel kinship with nature, to recognize the exciting animals that are part of even the industrial world.

FDF likes to commission tall tales; a similar feature had me drawing scouts escaping the country on bicycles converted to boats.

ALCOHOL is a serious subject for my client, the scouting organisation, FDF. During their scouting years, kids grow into adulthood, and innocence ends.

BUSY drawings are a wonderful staple of illustration, and I often get commissions for really packed, swarming scenes.
