Illustration Friday: Play


From my book "Mary had a Little Ham". Stanley Snoutowski, the actor, presenting a play to Mary's class. What a pig! I know I did this a long time ago, but it seemed to fit. The whole book is about how Stanley the pig wants to make it on Broadway. Here he is in Hamlet, his first big part in a play. And while we are at it, here are a few more plays with Stanley in the starring role. Enjoy.

Hah that's hilarious!:D Looks like a fun book and awesome illustrations as well. Love your warm-up sketches, so many cool characters and personalities. I especially dig the Pirates, but I'm also a big pirate enthusiast.

Great posts,

Long-time fan of your work. Shane had you sign a book for me once (Showdown at Slickrock) that we had purchased just for the illustrations (before we had heard of you) and my son had Pizza Pat memorized when he was 2. Well done. I'm now a member of Toon Club, so see you there.

I totally love the pig-themed posters. I love the detail you put into your work... I can look at something you've drawn for a long time and not get tired of it. Great stuff, Guy.
