Thanks go out to Magination Press, who interviewed me for their new blog! I talk about my illustration process, and highlights from creating "All My Stripes". You can also browse their blog for entries about other talented authors and illustrators.
Fun mail today! My copies of "Big Red and the Little Bitty Wolf" arrived today! It is so exciting to see the book in print! This title will be released in February, and are available for pre-order. Hope you all enjoy this re-imagined "Little Red Riding Hood", in which the new girl at school is causing big problems for a little bitty wolf.
I just got a product sample of the latest infant development toy from SmartNoggin, the NogginRings. I worked on the parent guide that comes with the toy to detail different activities and techniques that parents can use to help their babies meet developmental milestones. It was great to finally see the product in person, and my baby enjoyed testing it out as well!
Hi, All! It's been a busy month! I just finished the artwork for "Big Red and the Little Bitty Wolf", to be released by Magination Press in spring 2016! I hope to be able to share some images from this book soon. However, in the meanwhile, here is my new promotional piece. I wanted to create something to appeal to upper elementary readers, and I have always loved magic, mystery and steampunk. I had a lot of fun with lighting in this piece. Hope you enjoy!
Also, Publisher's Weekly has announced by next picture book from Magination Press, "Big Red and the Little Bitty Wolf." I'm working on the final art for this title right now, and am excited for its release in spring 2016! In the meantime, check out this sneak peak at the character art! I had a lot of fun designing Red's outfits!
Fun mail. A copy of "Highlights High Five" came in with one of my
hidden pictures inside. Many of these horses pictured are similar to ones I played with as a child. Olivia and I had fun doing the puzzles in this magazine
