Captain Perserverance

Julia House Publishing commissioned me to illustrate The Captain Perserverance children's book by award winning author Brod Bagert. The book was lots of fun to work on, Brod was very flexible and pretty much gave me free reign over the design and visual interpretation of his story. After some stylistic experimentation, we settled on an energetic comic book kind of style as it relates to the sort of old fashioned values the book promotes about grit and determination. i created all character designs, storyboards, and final artwork

It was Illustrated over about a 2 month period, in 2015, and I also completed all the print production layouts for Ingram Publishing in 2016. Here's a few pages and some of the concept development work created during the project.
