Children's book watercolor illustration for
Swimming with Sharks

This watercolor painting as the illustration for Swimming with Sharks, a children's book written by Weig C. George, and published by HarperCollins Publishers in Summer, 1999.

Sarah was swimming with her grandpa along with a large tiger shark, slowly.

I was asked to swim with sharks, to have the first-hand experience. I agreed that swim with sharks for illustrating the Swimming with Sharks, seems quite right. If I would do that, that first thing that I got to do, that was learn how to swim, and that may take me too long.

Book Summary: ...Until she began to take notice of the unusual-looking fish that visited her grandparents' dock every day. When Sarah discovers she's befriended a baby lemon shark, her fascination with sharks begins. Before long, Sarah and her grandfather are inseparable as they spend hours tracking, observing, and swimming with sharks. The Florida summer heats up quickly with heart-pounding shark encounters and the daring pursuit of two shark-fin poachers. This is a shark-filled summer Sarah and her grandfather won't soon forget.
