The Gift Basket by Alvalyn Lundgren

One of a series of watercolor and gouache illustrations I created for a self-published book, Skeeter, Scatter and Scutter and a Boy Named Brian, by Mamie McCullough. In the story, 3 brothers — Skeeter, Scatter and Scutter — realize that their possum neighbor has fallen on hard times and has no means to celebrate Thanksgiving. So they gather a basket of nuts for him.

In addition to the illustrations, I designed the cover and interior pages of the book.
