Illustration Friday: Run

This sample art for a new chapter book-in-progress suits the topic nicely... Mt. Vesuvius is erupting. For goodness sakes, RUN!


Illustration Friday: Match

Print this out twice, trim into ninths and settle down for a game o' memory. The "matching game" as my daughter deems it!


One month to go... and a busy fall ahead!

Boo's Dinosaur, a "early chapter book" written by Newbery Medal winner Betsy Byars, illustrated by moi, and mentioned at least a few times in these musings, finally roars to life in your local bookstores and libraries in exactly one month!

I really enjoyed this project and can't wait to see it get legs. I'll post any reviews when they arrive as well as bookmarks and a coloring page or two in the next few weeks. For now, you can enjoy the cover, take a step back into these here bloggable archives (for illustrations in progress) and pre-order the books at your favorite online or brick and morter booksellers :)

Check back soon for a full fall events schedule. I'll be out there pounding some pavement, sharing the BOO, and talking about everthing else that I do.
