You’ll Ride With Me

posted in: Creative 2

I will share the last sneak-peek illustration for Peter Not-Pizzaface and the Decrepit Caboose. I have only one more to finish (which you will not see unless you read the novel) and then the junior fiction novel drops into an e-store near you! Peter Not-Pizzaface and the Decrepit caboose is a novel bursting with thrilling wilderness adventure, humour and strong female characters.

The illustration below is of one of the main characters, a fascinating, almost other-worldly girl….She is my very first digital human portrait. I’d never painted human skin digitally before this picture. I enjoy digital painting so much that I believe there might be no turning back to real oil paint. I love the no-clean-up between painting sessions. Real oil painting is horribly messy and toxic and to be relieved of that is an unbelievable gift.


 A hand reaches out and grabs hold of my arm. “You’ll ride with me.” She has the voice of one tough girl. The grip on my arm actually hurts a little. She yanks me inside and slams the door.

 —from the novel Peter Not-Pizzaface and the Decrepit Caboose.

      You guessed it. I used pics of 12 year old Mist as inspiration for the character.
