Illustrations for "The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher" from The Complete Tales of Peter Rabbit and Other Favorite Stories by Beatrix Potter. "Mr. Jeremy Fisher's dinner party complete with roasted grasshopper and a fine lace tablecloth, in a very wet dining room was a great image to illustrate. Creating the characters, the dinner guests Sir Issac Newton, and Mr. Alderman Ptolemy Tortoise, in a new way is one of the wonderful challenges of illustrating classic children's stories. To set the proper tone, I felt the elegant white lace tablecloth was the key to the picture."
