I was honored to be asked to create event artwork for the Oregon SCBWI Spring conference — registration is now open at https://oregon.scbwi.org/events/between-the-pages-2016-annual-spring-conference/
I did work on my daily sketches over the weekend, but I have decided that from here on out I will accumulate a week of daily drawings and then choose a few to post every Monday. I am finding that while daily posting is good for motivation, it is also a short hop from “a quick post on my blog” over into the crazy time-sucking vortex of social media. Hopefully I can strike a better balance by posting only once a week.
Two for Joy by Gigi Amateau (Candlewick, June 2015) is on its way to the printer! I was hired to illustrate the book last spring, and am very excited to see it in print at last. My work included a full color cover and black and white interiors. Here’s a sneak peek.
My dear friend and fellow illustrator Kate Berube produces a zine for kids called Tater Totter. She invited me to contribute to her most recent issue, and I had a great time producing this fun little DIY tutorial for her readers.
