All told there are about 35-40 books that I’ve illustrated, ranging from dinosaurs to first aid. Most are produced by Williamson Publishing and are instructional activity books that deal with social, scientific, and historical subjects. And then of course, there are some that are just for fun.

    Really like your art Mike. Your sketches all have a joyful expression. Do you use a tablet for any of your work?

    Actually, I do… a Wacom Bamboo. I had developed severe carpal tunnel from using my mouse so much, but with the tablet I’m free to keep going long hours into the night. Thanks for the nice comments.

    I have also had carpal tunnel. I’m sure you know that you should get it treated (if you haven’t already) because it only gets worse over time. I recently purchased a Wacom Intuos5 but need motivation to keep practicing. 🙂
