My Last Illustration Friday Sketchbook Project Combo for the Year

This is the last full spread in my Sketchbook Project "Treehouse" book:

The contrasting designs of the two houses is inspired by this week's Illustration Friday topic "vanity."  Sorry, no prizes for figuring out who's meant to be vain in this picture, but if you can come up with a creative reason why it would be the guy in the tree on the left, I'd love to read your explanation in the comments.

One page (half a spread) left to go before this puppy gets mailed to Brooklyn.


  1. "Well," the man on the left thinks, "I understand what is important like nobody else in world. Only I know to live in a modest tree house. Then there are no distractions when I ruminate on my brilliant ideas. Thank heavens that I am me."

    First visit to your blog - your drawings are wonderful. It is a great sketchbook!

  2. Hi, Dan!
