I was invited again this year to contribute an illustration to the 2012 Winkie Con program. Winkie Con is an annual convention held every year in the Monterey area of California, that celebrates the works of L. Frank Baum as well as the various writers who continued the Oz books after Baum’s death. This year, the convention was celebrating, among other things, the 90th anniversary of the publication of “Kabumpo in Oz,” the second OZ book written by Ruth Plumly Thompson. 
Since I hadn’t read the book, my first idea for an illustration was to create a portrait of the book’s main characters. They include Prince Pompadore of Pumperdink, Kabumpo the elephant, Wags the rabbit and Peg Amy a wooden peg doll.  I based my character designs on the illustrations of John R. Neill, the original illustrator of the book. This is a digital sketch that I created in Painter 12. 
I wasn’t really happy with the way this illustration was going (I couldn’t get the Prince’s pose, standing on the elephant’s tusk, to look right) so I eventually abandoned this idea for an entirely different illustration from a different book that was also being celebrated. I’ll post that illustration at another time.
