Jacob and the Waterspout

I wrote another new children's book, which is, as yet, untitled. First draft. I decided to work on illos for it, or studies or drafts for them in the moleskine exchange sketchbooks. I am using the large watercolor sketchbooks for another children's book, A Good Day to Stay Home. So I am using the yellow coated paper A3s for this new book. To see the full illo and read about it, go to my image blog, Imagik.

Washing up in Ballookey's Moleskine Sketchbook

I sort blobbed this up a little.

It has a story. Onondaga Lake, in Syracuse, NY, where I used to live, is one of the most polluted lakes in the country if not the world. I was there one day walking and taking pictures when a migrant worker drove up in his pick-up truck, got out, and washed up in the toxic waters of the lake. A storm was approaching--I tried to tell him that the water wasn't clean, but he didn't understand me. I was thinking the storm was a figurative one as well as a literal one.

I had some problems with this, and may try it again sometime.
