I had a project going about an indoor cat who escapes outside and gets killed several times before learning the ways of the wild and making it back home.  Even while making it, I wondered if it was marketable.  After showing the project to an editor and getting some valid reasons why it would be a hard sell, my agent and I decided not to pursue this one.  But I really enjoyed how the art was turning out. At least I get to show it off here.

For these illustrations, I painted separate watercolor pieces and scanned them into the computer.  Then I put the compositions together collage-style.  I wanted to work digital on this one so I could play with the opacity on the ghosts.  I love the orange/turquoise color schemes in the night scenes.
