Today I finished the last illustration for my newest Christmas book, "The Christmas Train" I am not the author just the illustrator. As usual I had a great time working on this book. The story is a nice reflection about a young boy and his discovery that giving can be more satisfying than receiving. The story takes place in 1937 so I had to do some research to portray the era, I did my best and am happy with the results. I love illustrating picture books, the sequential nature of picture books suits me and I hope I have many more opportunities to do all the books that are in my head. Here is one of the scenes from the book.
