This page is dedicated to new jobs that I'm working on or have just completed, as well as projects from the past. It is to show the creative process of used sketches and finished art. It also showcases the unique art jobs I attract promoting educational purposes, character development and other forms of imaginative creations.

Cartoon Projects

“Our Scrumptious Lake, Phyto-Tastic” was a two year project that took several revisions and rewritings to perfect. The above shows the cover along with the first ideas for character development. The bottom 2 was the first ideas for the beginning of the book, a lot wrapped around the Abenaki appreciation of the lake and its gifts.

 

 

Here is a page from the children's book, Ned Says…I LOVE IT HERE!   The simple story of a simple “monk” tells a day in his life and all the adventures a happy, little monk can have. The secret to his happy demeanor comes from distributing positive messages in the form of stickers.  In fact, the book comes with stickers that read: “Awesome!”, “Spread Good Vibes!”, and, of course- “I Love it Here!” (to name a few).  You can find the stickers and the book at www.freelycreative.com/ned.

 

Okay, so the above visuals are not cartoons, BUT…it is the cover of my new novel that I designed myself. I wanted to show the progress of the ideas that went into a book cover design. The story is about wolves (wolf-shifters) and takes place in Vermont, thus the images chosen:)  An interesting fact of the wolf face is that those are my eyes, photoshopped, in the image.

If you, or an adventurous teen in your life, is interested-Check out the book on Amazon or Booklocker.com. Visit my new website: marchughesbooks.com.

 

The work above is art used or never used from the past. I thought it helpful to sometimes show the variety and diversity of old work.
