The Geologic Time Scale

The geologic time scale is split into four major eras–Precambrian, Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic, and are subdivided into periods. The number beside the era or period in the infotoon below shows how many years ago it began. I thought it would be fun to show it as walk through the park. This would also make for a great class project as well. For more information, see the Earth issue of Kids Discover magazine. We start at the Precambrian…

Note: MYA=millions of years

Making Faces

08-09-expressions

This was an illustration for Kids Discover Muscles, explaining how different muscles are used to make different facial expressions. It also serves as a guide for when I’m drawing other characters. The only drawback was that I couldn’t use kids that wore glasses. There was also a lot of mirror time in this one.
