Local Artists Make Eli and Mort’s World Come to Life
Local Artists Make Eli and Mort’s World Come to Life

Mort and I wanted to show you all how the local children of the Vail Valley came up with the backgrounds for our first book, Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures Beaver Creek. It was really cool watching our friends make our world come to life. Booyah!

Did you know that the artists in our first adventure ranged from 7 to 17 years old?

That’s amazing, isn’t it?

Sophie Russell is 11 years old. Older than Mort and me.  She loves to ski Beaver Creek as much as she can. She also likes to eat Blue Moose Pizza!

So do we.  Which is probably why she was so good at drawing the Blue Moose.

Look at all of the practice drawings Sophie did before she got to her final picture.



Almost Perfect


We hope this will give you insight into how you can create a beautiful image like Sophie and the rest of our awesome illustrators.

 Now That’s PerfectEliandMort_BlueMoose

If you like to draw, please send us your drawings and we will post them on our website.

…And who knows, when we come to your area maybe you could draw a background in one of our next Adventures!

See you soon!
Eli and Mort
