I never finished my friend Adam Smith's storybook, but at least I can post the unused images below. I loved the initial work, but realized I'd created it at too low resolution and despaired at the thought of having to redraw them (the dang bike and tree took forever). I ended up procrastinating long enough that I told Adam he'd better find another illustrator. I still love the story, though.
