Illustration Friday: Clean


I't time to post a painting from the past. I have a busy week ahead of me and I don't think I'll have time to do something new, besides, I did a whole book about cleaning. This is from "Mrs. McBloom, Clean Up Your Classroom". It's about a teacher who never cleans her room in fifty years of teaching. She asks her students to come up with ideas to get room #5 tidy. This is Sam Wigglesworth's Super-Duper-Picker-Upper-Thingamabob with Lilly Lumpkin the magician and some random kid in the background. I wish I could get my own kids that excited about cleaning their rooms. Enjoy.

As a teacher, I can sympathize with your Mrs. McBloom. I love how there are a million things going on. You could spend quite a bit of time looking at all the details. Nice.

I love your style. After looking over your Blog I really wanted to just draw, draw, draw. Thanks for sharing. I am glad to find yet another amazing artist living in the same great state of Utah.

The McBloom book is amazing Guy! Each page reminds me of the old Where's Waldo find books-- only much better illustrated, and interesting to look at. The joy in reading this book is in the details, and there are so many details!
