Don Powers illustrated 13 pictures for "The Silver Donkey."
The book originally published in Australia is now making its way to American bookshelves.
Powers has been a fine arts painter for 30 years and says he welcomes the change.
"It's a change, it's a big exciting change. There's a lot that goes along with doing illustrations. It's more of a team effort. Painting is you and the easel."
Powers says he submitted nearly 60 ideas for the book and that each illustration takes about a week to complete.
