This piece was done for the the Clark County Historical Museum in celebration of the 200 year anniversary of the Lewis & Clark Expedition to the Pacific. The activity book was written by historian Barbara J. Kubik and was approved curriculum for every school district in the county. I did all the illustration and layout work. All the illustrations were thoroughly researched for historical accuracy.
The cover piece was a particular challenge as we wanted something that looked like an actual journal but could be printed in a paperback format. At first we considered Tromp l'oeil, but rejected that based on time limitations. The cover is a wrap around that was completely digitally constructed. Each element was scanned separately and then joined together in Photoshop. Even the ink blots were a separate scan. It was challenging and fun and I think the results are fabulous.
