Double page spread for "The Monster Who Ate My Peas", published by Peachtree. Was strange to open the review copy and find that the art director had flipped the art and printed it backwards. Not the first time this had happened to my work. And I think the story flowed better with the change. I don't mind this sort of editing of the work, I just wish they'd let me in on the changes prior to the printing. Gouache and water color, 2000. And, btw, my son Gabriel Faulkner posed for the hero in the story. Cost me many packs of Pokemon cards to get him to sit still while I sketched and photo'd him. And, bless his heart, was certain that I used myself as the inspiration for the monster. He could be right.
