Spring is the air, almost...

Final cover with type and seeds blowing in the wind

It's the dead of winter in Colorado but I have a new spring book release, Daisylocks by Marianne Berkes. It's our second book together and I love illustrating her stories. As an avid gardener, if I can't grow flowers while the ground is frozen over at least I can draw them. It's almost as good. Our book officially hits stores mid February. 

Also, Libby James from North Forty News came out to my home and interviewed me for their January edition. I feel a little funny when people ask me what I do because as a children's book illustrator I basically sit here drawing. And researching. And then I do that a lot more until I'm done, end of story. But Libby made it sound so much better. You can read the interview here.
