First up was a page and a half illustration of the Taj Mahal that ran in issue 25 (the fold was right between the main building and that right-most tower). I was able to sneak my wife Claire and I into the left side of the illustration as a pair of tourists, even though we have never been to India. Maybe someday! (click to see it bigger).
Then, in issue 26 I drew another illustration for the Gabby's Journal feature, which follows a little girl as she travels around the United States of America with her family. In this issue they visited the Walk of Fame is Hollywood, California. I made sure to cram in as many cars as possible into this scene, to make it feel realistic. Also you can see that I tried to feature the star of cartoonist Charles Schulz, which seemed appropriate, since I am a cartoonist too.
Next week we'll continue the tour of American landmarks that I drew for Highlights in 2014!
