Orange


This drawing appears in a new textbook geared towards inspiring 4th graders to write. It accompanies an essay by noted author, Beverly Cleary, who recounts various lessons she learned in her childhood. This piece recalls a day when she was holding an orange, and her father explained how it was a similar in shape to Earth. If your traced around it with your finger around it, you'd find yourself back at the same place you started.

You can view my drawings accompanying an essay by the great Rosa Parks, here.
A special thanks to art director, Carmela Stricklett, 
at Amplify for this really fun opportunity.
