I'm doing double duty today. I have drawings for a different project due on top of my regular page quota. I've been illustrating a series called "Secret in the Attic" for a few years now. It's a Scholastic book fair series about time traveling kids (it's sort of like the Magic School Bus, but a few grades older.) I'm on book four now. The author, L. A. Peacock, seems to have a very long term plan because the four books so far have all taken place in the ancient world; Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt etc. That means we still have practically all of history to time travel through. I hope the series continues, because the illustrations are fun to do. Also, Scholastic pays well. In fact, at our house, we spell it $cholastic.
Here's the cover of book 1:
I do the covers, then about 30 black and white interior illustrations. The book 4 cover was finished weeks ago, but I'm still working out the interiors. So, back to it. Toga party.
