Lasso the Wind: Aurélia's Verses and Other Poems

My latest work is with Nimbus, creating the artwork for Lasso the Wind, Nimbus Publishing, text by George Elliott Clarke.  I have admired George's literature and poetry, and found the visual imagery within his work inspirational. Over several years, George an I had conversations regarding the idea of an illustrated poetry book for children.  Working with collage, drawings, paintings, and digital imaging, the following are 
illustrations from the final publication.
