Now and Then

Check out MB Artists' newest promotional catalog.  For this collection, we all created pieces themed "Now and Then".  My piece includes a cameo of my great grandfather.  Miss you Papa Mario!  Hope you all enjoy these beautiful illustrations as I and my fellow illustrators bring a little bit of nostalgia from memory lane to our pieces.

"Something Happened In Our Town"

I am excited to announce that my newest title "Something Happened In Our Town: A Child's Story About Racial Injustice" will be released next week by Magination Press.  I hope that as children are asking questions about current events across the country, that this book's ultimate message of reaching out to our neighbors in friendship inspires children to be a light in the world.

"Did You Hear" Dress-Up

As an illustrator, I just love it when kids feel a connection to the characters in my books.  The highest praise I could ever receive came today when Ania Kelly sent me this photo of her adorable daughter wearing a custom outfit and dressed up like Emma from my recent title "Did You Hear: A Story About Gossip."  I was absolutely floored!  She looks AMAZING!  Big hugs and a high five go out to this little girl for sending me this memory as we close out 2017!
