I'll huff and I'll puff and draw till the house comes down

OK, if you've been paying attention, and even if you haven't, I've been illustrating a new version of The 3 Pigs - part of the StoryTime Cafe series. (Scroll back for the cover image) Out of context this image doesn't mean a lot. But when the book is complete and you see this illustration, along with the story, along with the next illustration and so on, please trust me it all works. So now I must work too.

Illustrating for a phonics program

Not every piece of art is a picture book illustration. Here's an image that is part of a phonics program for kindergarten students. Just one of dozens of different spots. A fun challenge - creating lots of individual images instead of dealing with the consistency of illustrating a 32 page picture book.

Now can you find and circle all the letter N's?
