The Three Little Worms Spell it Out

This is the third story to feature the Three Little Worms (it's the second to feature Bucky Bug) and I'm told there are more stories to come. I absolutely love illustrating these characters. You can read the full story and see the rest of the illustrations in the current issue of High Five Magazine (January 2010).

Here's a sample of the final sketches (p. 3 & 4) that were approved by Highlights High Five Magazine, along with the final art for the same images... enjoy.

In order to get the child-like look for Bucky's drawing I created a separate work of art using oil crayons on charcoal paper. I scanned the image and then warped it in Photoshop, according to the perspective of each scene. Take a look.
