Boat #134, The Big Blue Boat

This week I was excited to receive the scanned art for Jonathan and the Big Blue Boat back from my publisher. I can be pretty ornery sometimes, but I have to say I think these images look great—somehow better than the originals themselves. This illustration is from the opening spread of the book. That's Jonathan and his stuffed bear Frederick out on the dock, looking up at their favorite blue boat.


  1. I got an F&G of this and LOVE IT (not surprising to me). I hope you're up for talking about it at 7-Imp. I shall probably bug you about that later.

  2. Of course! I was thinking about maybe doing a post about my process similar to the one that Erin did a while back. So feel free to bug me later.
