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.

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.



Tsavo East National Park  |  May 2014

Watch a family of Tsavo’s famously red elephants eat lunch in the rain during my research for my picture book, HOW TO BE AN ELEPHANT. No filter or post-production effects have been used; seriously, folks, the elephants are this red!

This elephant video was filmed in Tsavo East National Park in May 2014 on a Canon 60D. Special thanks to my mom and to Ben Gitari, our incredible safari driver.
