Last year I illustrated a Child Craft Annual for World Book Encyclopedia about the formation of the English language. Soon after the publication of that book, they approached me again about creating some illustrations for a follow up book that focused on the stories behind some common words. I jumped on the opportunity since WB was so great to work with, and this series of simple illos. turned out to be a great project as well. I've included a couple of samples below to give you a feel for the book.
