Whether illustrating his own work or that of others, Ering's art is by turns energetic, quirky, evocative, offbeat, expressive, and distinctive. It allows readers of all ages to appreciate how idiosyncratic art can help one see the world in fresh, unexpected ways. Meet a child who rocks the world with a temper tantrum, Snook whose loyalty is ultimately rewarded, and an unexpected bivalve hero. See the world through the images of an abused, isolated teenager. All of these and more can be seen through the multifaceted work of Timothy Basil Ering.
Edwin is a translucent 'wiggleskin' — a clam — who sheds his shell for the sake of adventure. Not only does he have a fabulous adventure but saves his clam clan from clam diggers. This quirky tale is fast-paced, funny, and illustrated in Ering's high-energy style.
A stick-figure boy enlivens his dreary town called Cementland when he discovers and plants a treasure. To protect it from robbers, he creates a scarecrow-like creature from various paraphernalia but winds up befriending the thieves. Hand-written text ideally complements the rich, active illustrations.
