Illustration Friday - Polar



This is a two-page spread I did for a picture book I wrote called the "Arctic Caboose" about explorer Robert Peary's expeditions to the North Pole. Several people thought I goofed because they didn't think puffins could fly (yep, they can - I've seen 'em)

What an amazing illustration! I also love the viewpoint, and all the great details, puffins, polar bears, sea elephants, and that grand old ship. Lovely colors and thick lines, like a woodcut. Great work!

I really like the narwhales swimming by the ship. Really pretty. I'd love to find the book.
