What an honor it was to work with the delightful folks at Puffin Books— the children's division of Penguin Group—to create Puffin Chalk, a new, whimsical series of classic children's books. Inspired by child-like playfulness, adventure, creativity, and wonder, these covers were lovingly created completely by hand at 40"x 55", then photographed for reproduction. See below for some behind-the-scenes sketches and process videos. Peter Pan, Pippi Longstocking, and The Wizard of Oz are all available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble today!
