Here are some of the illustrations I drew for Southern Cross. Most are based on photographs, although I usually took a sketchbook on the road as well. You can find more illustrations inside this original first edition, I prepared for friends and family in 2010.

This version is arranged differently than the trade paperback (available for purchase on Amazon) and it probably contains a few more typos. But it's here and it's free, available as a PDF download.

Let me know what you think!
