As a freelance illustrator I enjoy a variety of assignments. While the vast majority of my art is geared toward children’s books and products, one of my favorite things to do in particular are spot illustrations for magazines. Something about a colorful piece tucked into a page of type excites me. I enjoy making a contribution to the overall design of a magazine. Sometimes type is wrapped around my work, other times it is a stand-alone on a page opposite the text, or a top of the page banner illustration. However it is used, it is always fun for me to work so purposefully with a designer. Just one more way that I help you do what you do. This particular piece is for the Spanish magazine Iguana, published by Carus Publications.
