It’s Children’s Book Week at Lake Effect! Here’s some illos in my retro-ey 50’s style I did for Lerner Publishing in Minneapolis. They were for a 4-book series that taught memorization techniques for kids, i.e., mnemonic devices, called “Adventures In Memory”, naturally. These particular pieces were from the last of the four, and involved things like punctuation, grammar and spelling.
Anyway, I really enjoyed working with the bright colors and characters. At times, it was a challenge to coordinate between the educational aspect and the silly stuff, but the series was a blast to do, and I’ll post more through the week.
