This Bright Light of Mine, page 10 Storybook art, August 2011, Pencil, Ink, Adobe Photoshop

This project was my second collaboration with pediatrician/author La Donna Johnson. The book is a bit of a long limerick, with a theme akin to Dr. Seuss's Oh the Places You'll Go.

I wanted to use a glittery motif over the course of this book, and also drew inspiration from Van Gough's Starry Night for this particular page. For the overall book, I also gave all the characters a thick black outline, to give it a childish coloring book look.
