This was my 1st book

On October 11, where I was showing off my 2nd book, I promised to post my 1st book. So, since I am so busy working on my website and not illustrating half as much as I want to and need to, I will try to dig up already done art to keep the blog breathing. No one wants an out of breath, stagnant, mosquito infested blog. Si?

Just a warning. This book was illustrated 3 years ago and my 2nd book which just came out was illustrated around last year at this time. Now, the stuff you see me posting since I created this blog in September has moved on in technique and style and direction. There are some pages in these books, that frankly embarrass me when I compare them to my present characters and the direction I am going in now. So if you are fixin' buy these books, thinking that you will get the same level of work my blog is promoting, you may be disappointed. How's that for selling my stuff? At least you get honesty here. No one has ever said to Jimmy, "you can't handle the truth!".
