The Wonderful City of Oz (and Springfield, MA!)

I'm very excited to be going to this year's annual New England Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Spring Conference tomorrow morning! This is for the illustration challenge, where we got to illustrate a passage from The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum!

Apologies for the lack of posts here! I have been very active on my Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and of course, my main website! I'll put some more updates here soon, and come on by to any of those places to say hello there, too!

If You Read Something, See Something

This is sort of an "update" to this drawing I made a few years ago. I'd like to think that we are meeting the bookish lady's daughter, and the girl is just as creative and day-dreamy as her mom!

This piece is dedicated to the kids I met as a visiting artist last week at the Free Arts NYC after-school program! They are such an amazing group of kids, teachers, and volunteers, and I feel so honored to have played a part in their program! The kids are incredibly smart and imaginative, I can't wait to see what they create in the future!

New Friends

Sunday Night Sketching!

Seals and Walruses

I came across a picture I drew on the back of a writing tablet when I was about five or six years old, and I drew it again!

Here's the original, from back in the day:

Old Friends

When they were little girls, they decided that they would be best friends forever. A whale never forgets a promise.
