Illustration

Illustration comes in many forms for Erick Hershey.  Among his favorite 2D media is Pen & Ink, which he used to create well over 100 illustrations and graphic elements for the children's book, "The Greenbear Chronicles" from Riley/Hall Publishing.  Browse the gallery and you will also find watercolor, digital art, traditional Scherenschnitte paper-cutting, and more!  Also see the "Sculpture" page for examples of Erick's sculptural illustration work.
