We all have those books that made a big impression on us as children – Anne of Green Gables was one of those books for me. So I was thrilled to be asked to create a cover illustration for this classic, as part of the exhibit: Covering the Classics at Gallery 1888 in Orange, California. I really enjoyed drawing Anne’s “carrot” red hair and freckles – especially since I had pictured them in my mind so much as a kid. (This was one of the several favorite novels that I re-read frequently!)
The show opens on November 30, and my work will be hanging along with the work of several other wonderful illustrators. Check it out if you are in town!
