Spike & the Wee Sea Folk, sneak peeks...

Welcome to Spike the Dragon's own Blog spot!
Spike's Halloween Hat, Christine Mix 2014, from Spike's Magical Halloween, his 2nd PB dummy  in progress.
 I started drawing, painting and writing about Spike right after I got out of college.  Since then, Spike has gained a few fans and has stuck with me as I grew up.  Spike is a friendly, but, clumsy dragon, who needs glasses.  In Spike's 1st picture book story,  Spike and the Wee Sea Folk., he has to venture out on his own for the first time and he meets new friends who help him make a pair of magical glasses and the adventure begins....
The image above is the cover art, along with the three images below, which are the first two full color illustrations, and one pencil drawing, (double spread,) for my picture book dummy, Spike and the Wee Sea Folk.   The picture book dummy, is available for viewing and critiquing.

 I painted the above image on the street in chalk for the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival in 1997, before I did a second one in watercolor.  It was fun and Spike made many friends.
