"Tornado!" reader available on Delta Education site



I worked on a reader for Delta Education last fall, called "Tornado! A Meteorologist and her Prediction," about real-life meteorologist Lynn Burse, who currently lives in Alabama. I did twelve paintings, ten of them full-bleed, double-page spreads for this project, and while it was a rewarding experience, it was a lot of work!

You can see a full view of the cover image here. (You can also see the tornado I painted too.) For the cover image, note the Miyazaki-style waving grass and super DRAMATIC SKY! I swear, I must have used an entire tube of Payne's gray working on this project.

Anyway, the other day I saw it on the Delta Education website, which is pretty cool.
