Holes

Hello! I apologize for posting slightly out of schedule (who uses the internet on a Saturday!?), but this month I made a last minute decision to retire From The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and begin illustrating a new book! I’d gotten everything I wanted out of FTMUFOMBEF, now it’s time for something new!

Holes, by Louis Sachar, was a real treat to read back in middle school. And it was a real treat to re-read this past week as a 25 year old.

There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. There was once a very large lake here, the largest in Texas. That was over a hundred years ago. Now it is just a dry, flat wasteland.

Stanley Yelnats was given a choice. The judge said, “You may go to jail, or you may go to Camp Green Lake.”

Stanley was from a poor family. He had never been to camp before.

    This looks GREAT! Perfect style for it, and the colors are spot on. Love the text, I’m really pumped for the rest of your drawings!
