The Christmas Train is here

The Christmas Train is available at Amazon, soon to be in stores as well. I consider it a real honor to have been chosen to illustrate this book. The paintings turned out well and I really love the story. The publisher (Deseret Book) Sent tons of photos of Thomas Monson and his family to use as reference for the paintings, It was sort of an inside glimpse of his childhood and family life. For the most part the book looks great, there are some color shifts that always happen in the printing process so I have learned as an illustrator not to get too attached to the color in your paintings. Anyway, its out and I hope you all go out and buy copies for all your family members, I know you will love it, after all the author is really good and the illustrations aren't bad either.
