Another “Trucks Go” sighting!

July 17, 2009

My wife spotted “Trucks Go” at the big Barnes and Noble in Union square here in New York City. If your Barnes and Noble does not have it on the shelf ask them to order it for you, they will be happy to do it.

“Trucks Go” to come out soon!

February 22, 2009

I thought I would share some pics of  when I was creating the illustrations for “Trucks Go”. This artwork was inspired by kids drawings and the simple way they capture the feeling of these big massive hunks of metal. I decided to limit myself in the supplies I used in order to get the directness in my art that every child naturally has. I used a limited palette of only four colors. The colors are Cadmium yellow deep hue, Hooker’s green light hue, Cadmium red medium hue and Lamp black. I used Grumbacher Academy watercolor. I only used one brush, a Langnickel 7150 Royal Knight size 8 brush. I also used a wood dip pen I carved with a razor (to draw the black smoke and tires!) This has been the most fun I have had creating this art. It was great to work with Quirk Packaging and Chronicle books.

So I was so lucky to be asked to do some art work for Kolo. Kolo makes these amazing photo albums and storage boxes. I filled one of their albums with sketches and made a sculpture that fits in one of their Havana storage boxes. It is in China right now as part of a Kolo art show. You can see more cool Kolo products at http://www.kolo.com and their blog http://www.koloist.com

Hichory Dichory Doc

This is a new sculpture I just finished carving. It is hand carved out of wood(except the mouses tails, they are wire!). It is obviously based on the nursery rhyme Hickory Dickory Dock. I choose to put three mice each named Hickory, Dickory and Doc. Doc is the one with the crooked tail(the smart one), Dickory is the one at the top(not so bright) and Hickory is the other one(very curious). It is great fun to do these and I plan on doing more after I finish some storyboxes. If you would like to see other work by me visit http://www.stevelightart.com!
