Happy Book Birthday!

Yesterday was the publication date for my first board book project, If I Were a Whale by Shelley Gill - and published by Sasquatch books. You can order your copy right here or ask for it at your local bookstore!

I usually wait until Thursday to post these - just to make sure that the print edition of the Methow Valley News is already in your hot little hands. That being said, the Valentine's Day edition deserves to be posted just a little closer to the mark :) A couple of WIP doodles from the sketchbook as well. Enjoy!

Surely I'm not the first to equate our President pro-tempore (as in "one who serves in the absence of someone superior) with a T. Rex, but the tiny hands and irrational and tempormental lashing about are too hard to pass up. 

Recounted here through the words of a young kit reading aloud from her dino book before bed... its the allegorical nature of the beast that is giving us parental types many nightmares indeed!

You know how that powdery snow is really hard to pack together into snowballs?? You just keep trying. Yep, that's what I'm talkin' about here. Straight up and totally transparent as per usual. GRRR!

Pure and simple: I need to keep some distance from the daily news barrage. I'll keep up on things for sure, but via small and measured doses and not so much in reaction to repeatedly crazy things...

Warm thoughts for COLD days. And perhaps the pine bark beetle population will die off as well!

And for Christmas eve... I have always liked the quiet contemplation of Silent Night - of something vast and large brought down to a small and intimate instance. We're an entire world full of connected community these days, people. Look for the common thread. Slow it down. Consider. Peace out!
