This is Geoff. I did some sketches of him as the hero of the book "The Monster Who Ate My Peas", by Danny Schnitzlein, Peachtree Publishing, back in 2000. I sent these sketches along with drawings of other kids, including some of my then ten year old son Gabriel, to the publisher. While I did like these drawings of Geoff, I was very pleased when the publisher told me that they wanted to use Gabriel as the hero. Had to pay Gabriel Faulkner a vast quantity of Pokemon cards to get him to sit still while I posed and drew him. Gouache on 300 lb. cold press water color paper.
