Poetry Illustrations - Be Glad Your Nose...

Today I would like to show you some work I did for an educational reader published by Scholastic Canada. I was asked to illustrate a poem by Jack Prelutsky titled Be Glad Your Nose is on Your Face and I have to say I had some fun with this one.

The interesting thing about working on these was how odd is was to draw a face without a nose, even in a more stylistic approach. That, and noses look funny anywhere other than on a face.

It's sunny here in Toronto and I am starting to realize how much I missed the smell of mud and earth.
Time to open a window or three.
