"Cars" illustration

This was for a fun short "Cars" story I illustrated in the 2008 edition of the "Disney Yearbook" (Scholastic). Snot Rod had been speeding through Radiator Springs, annoying everyone, so Lightning McQueen challenged him to a long desert race. Trying to take a short cut through a dangerous area, Snot Rod got stuck in a collapsed mine shaft entrance, and McQueen and friends rescued him. After that, he cleaned up his act and took a job at Flo's Cafe.

It was a great opportunity to gain futher professional experience creating original rough layouts, as well as final pencils. Prior to this book, I had been primarily cleaning up the sketched layouts of other artists. This was a chance to prove myself.
