This was my first drawing for the Graham's Up the Tree book. I was anxious with it being the first of a much larger set so I used my most trusted pen: Metal Pilot Falcon, Soft Extra Fine. mbpardy loved it and I went on to make a bunch more.
Colored with Winsor & Newton watercolors on Strathmore Multimedia 140lb paper.
Drawn with my Pilot Custom 74 using De Atramentis Document Ink Black.
Here's the final book cover for my wife's book which just launched on Kindle Scout. If you have a moment please vote for it:
Many thank yous!!!

They gather around, grateful, sending prayers up just to thank.
(Directed at the man selected to be in the tank.)
Who knows why that man is bare in there, and to be frank-
They're thankful that it's him, not them. You can take that to the bank!
Three kings stopped a walking man to ask advice about their dreams.
But the man said, "Oh no please, I don't want to hear these things."
"I have dreams of my own although they'll never come to pass...
I just work my life away while all you rich guys sit and laugh."
It's Weinerman Sam with his weiner schnitzel fam,
Putting sausages to bed like a good fam-i-ly man.
Doing ev'ry thing he can just to get them into bed,
For a restful night of sleep in a warm bun made of bread.
