The Artwork

Wesley often told people he was an illustrator, not an artist, a claim which is absolutely false. Among the charming illustrations he created for books, there are some beautiful pieces that could certainly stand alone as pieces of art. And he certainly did plenty of other non-illustration work.

My goal in this section is not to show all of his book illustrations. Anyone with a decent public library can find most of it there. However, I would like to show some illustrations that weren't used and perhaps some that have interesting annotations that fans might enjoy. I also hope to provide examples of his other artwork that may not be so widely known.

Again I'll ask that if anyone looking through the website has originals or examples of unique things, I would love to hear about them and see pictures. And with your permission, I would be delighted to show them off on the website as well.
