Hello again everyone, merry Christmas to you all. Today I finished the last complete illustration for a book I have written. The Egg Beaters is a heavily illustrated chapter book about some chickens playing baseball. I got the original idea about 10 years ago when I was hired to create a poster for a friend. The poster was a birthday present for her cousin who loved baseball and chickens. As I drew, and then painted the poster I contemplated the characters, and dreamed up a story for them. That story was the nucleus for The Egg Beaters.
This pencil sketch was done with a Pentel .7mm P207 mechanical pencil in a Pentalic Sketchbook on 70lb paper. I hope you enjoyed this post, and that it encouraged you, made you think, or challenged you. God bless, merry Christmas, and have a great day! --Ryan
