A couple months ago I did some illustrations for both Cricket and Spider magazines, and they just came out in the May/June issue. These were really fun jobs and the people were great to work with. It's funny that both stories revolved around a similar character (a grumpy old guy).
The Spider illustrations were for a poem called 'Mr. Ollie Odenhofer' by Monica Gudlewski. Please excuse the image quality. I haven't gotten the originals back yet so I just took a snapshot of the magazines.
The Cricket illustrations were for a tall Tale called 'Making Do' by Joan E. McCarthy.
Many thanks go out to Sue and Karen for involving me in these projects.
