For years, Jim Burke has art directed this great calendar project. He was able to get an impressive list of illustrators to work with him - and garner many awards along the way. The assignment is wide open, as long as the art is frog related. I was real happy he asked me to do this one, but I only had about a week to finish - after getting a few other assignments done and out the door. To be expected in this biz. It came about just when I was experimenting with a new sketchbook style, so I had a clear vision of where I wanted to go with this. This remains one of my favorites. Recognition includes: Society of Illustrators, 3X3 Illustration Annual, Luerzer’s Archive Top 200 Illustrators Worldwide.
