Happy Book Birthday, Jerry!

Today is the day! I've been dreaming of becoming a picture book illustrator since I was a little kid, and my first picture book is officially out into the world. Pick up Not So Scary Jerry by Shelley Kinder, illustrated by me, at Clear Fork Publishing, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or ask your local bookstore and library to carry it. I can't wait for everyone to get to know Jerry, his boy, and pug!

Daily warm-up sketch yesterday. Don't ask why chickens were on the brain. I still have no idea.

Dick Bruna tribute

Another illustration hero gone. Dick Bruna passed away yesterday at 89. What a long, successful career he had. His simple, striking, emotive illustrations have influenced me so much. You will be missed Mr. Bruna, but your illustrated legacy lives on in your characters, books, book covers, merchandise, and more. Thanks for all you gave literature.

Big News!

Pardon the post interruption—I have some big news. I have recently signed to illustrate my first picture book

I am so thrilled and honored to get this project! It is written by Shelley Kinder and due to arrive September of 2017 with Clear Fork Publishing. I've got a lot of work set out before me, so bear with me as posts will likely be even more intermittent than usual. Thanks for your support and encouragement as I work towards this goal!

I had a December daily ink drawing planned, but currently I'm not sure if I'll be able to do it. My deadlines are set and tight, not to mention I've had a respiratory infection all week which has knocked every thing out of whack. Check back for updates on whatever I'm working on and able to share!
