Elephant Book Cover Time-Lapse Drawing

Watch as a baby African elephant comes to life for the book cover of HOW TO BE AN ELEPHANT: GROWING UP IN THE AFRICAN WILD—my second picture book with Roaring Brook Press/David Macaulay Studio.

The final art was drawn with pencil and completed in watercolor, ink, and gouache.

This time-lapse video was shot in my studio with an iPhone 3G using iTimeLapse, and the sound of the elephants grazing were captured on my Canon EOS 60D DSLR camera while out in the field with the Save The Elephants team in Samburu during my book research trip in May 2014. A very special thanks to David Daballen, who conjured my breathtaking introduction to African elephants on my first full day in the field.

 


Shark Attacks Seal Time-Lapse Drawing

Watch as a great white shark comes to life in my debut picture book, NEIGHBORHOOD SHARKS. Set to the tune of the shark-filled waters of the Farallones, this drawing is not for the faint of heart!

The final art was drawn with pencil and completed in watercolor, ink, and gouache.

This time-lapse video was shot in my studio with an iPhone 3G using iTimeLapse, and the audio was captured with a Tascam DR-05 digital recorder while I was on Mirounga Bay at the Farallon Islands and on Tomales Bay near Point Reyes during my shark research trip in October 2012. Special thanks to Ron Elliott, Scot Anderson, Paul Kanive, and the crew of the Derek M. Baylis.

 


Farallon Islands Time-Lapse Drawing

Soar high over California’s Farallon Islands in this time-lapse video for my debut picture book, NEIGHBORHOOD SHARKS. Set to the tune of the shark-filled waters of the Farallones, this drawing is the last spread in the book.

The final art was drawn with pencil and completed in watercolor, ink, and gouache.

This time-lapse video was shot in my studio with an iPhone 3G using iTimeLapse, and the audio was captured with a Tascam DR-05 digital recorder while I was on Mirounga Bay at the Farallon Islands during my shark research trip in October 2012.

Mpala Research Centre  |  May 2014

Watch as African elephants trumpet and bluff charge our truck during field research for my picture book, HOW TO BE AN ELEPHANT. Book research is not for the faint of heart!

This elephant video was filmed at the Mpala Research Centre, Laikipia District, Kenya in May 2014 on my Samsung Galaxy 3. Special thanks to elephant researcher (and expert driver), Sandy Oduor, for getting us out of there swiftly and safely.
