Welcome to my Projects page. This is where I share with you all of my current ‘works-in-progress.’ This will be anything from writing and illustrating children’s educational picture books to building specialized beekeeping equipment.

Release Date to be Revealed soon! For the moment, the tentative time is Summer 2019!!

The text is written and over half of the Illustrations are finished and waiting πŸ˜‰

Well here it is, the first Sneak Peek at the upcoming children’s picture book. I’m illustrating this book myself. Each watercolor is hand-painted by yours truly using a M. Graham & Co. Watercolor Set that uses HONEY as an ingredient! When we reach our first 20 subscribers, I’m going to release the title of this upcoming book of awesomeness! So subscribe and share.

Sneak peek at my watercolor art for an upcoming children's picture book about honey bees and wildflowers.
This children’s picture book is written and illustrated by me, Jonathan Adam Hargus. The medium is watercolor. And for those who are interested, I’m using M. Graham watercolors, made with HONEY! And Winsor & Newton, cold-pressed 7×10″ paper.

The ideas behind my upcoming book is simple: Teach children that honey bees are something to fascinate about rather than fear. Also, to show them that there is no such thing as a ‘weed,’ but that every flower is food for a pollinator. My hope is that this will create a foundation of conservancy, respect, and appreciation for what we have.

I’ve created links to the supplies mentioned below the image above. You can find the specific M. Graham Watercolor Paints/’Desert Southwest’, that I used, M. Graham & Co. Watercolor Set here. Additionally, Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolor Paper Block, Cold Pressed 140lb.

As a beekeeper, I really like the fact that M. Graham uses honey in their watercolor paints. The paint is really smooth and doesn’t dry out because honey absorbs moisture from the air. Plus, these are professional grade paints, without being the most expensive out there. They’re my favorite!

    1. Thanks! I am getting more and more enthusiastic as I get closer to my goal. Especially after one of our best friends agreed to use her grammar talents for good and become my editor.
