This Week in the Studio

Painted the cover for "The Great Katie Kate Explains Diabetes". Scanned, color corrected and delivered this painting to the client. Sketched 12 pages for "Jack and the Toddler". Worked on thumbnails for additional pages of this project.
Well, I have officially delivered all of the final art for "The Great Katie Kate Explains Diabetes." I hope the client likes it :) While I wait for approval, I just wanted to share one of my favorite spreads. I just like the expressions on the kids' faces, and I like how Katie's hair turned out. Enjoy!

Book Signing

This past weekend, "Reuben Rides the Rails" was officially released at the Children's Museum of Indianpolis. It was such a fun day! I got to meet the author Barb McLaughlin in person. It is very rare that I actually get to meet the authors whose books I illustrate, so this was a rare treat for me! Together, we signed over 200 books (some pre-orders, some purchased on the day of the book signing)! We took pictures together in front of the engine that inspired the book, greeted parents and kids, and took photos with the children as well. Such a busy but very fun day! Thanks go out the the Children's Museum of Indianapolis and the Children's Museum Guild for this great project and for hosting us on Saturday. For those wishing to purchase a copy, hardbacks can be purchased from the store at the Children's Museum. Paperback copies can be puchased from Amazon.
