A character sketch and a couple of thumbnails for "You're On Your Way, Teddy Roosevelt!" by Judith St. George and illus.d by me, publ.d by Phylomel-Penguin&Putnam. Teddy R. had a very serious case of asthma when he was a boy. Doctors recommended high altitude, coffee and cigar smoking as a cure (ya, I know...). He also had recurring bad dreams that involved a werewolf. I took it upon my self as illustrator to add these two elements in the visual story telling and brought the werewolf into the scene whenever Teddy was suffering a bout with asthma. Pencil, 12" x 15", 2003.
