What could these pigships from outer space want with our pigs and chickens?  You'll have to find out when Attack of the Space Chickens is available in my Etsy shop.  Coming soon!

Speaking of Etsy shop, you can now purchase a signed copy of "A Moment in Time", illustrated by me and written by the lovely Jennifer Butenas.  I've got to say, it turned out very nicely, and the book would be a perfect gift for any kid, especially those future photographers!  Click on the photo below to get your own copy . . limited supplies available:
This book would look great on your shelf!
Look!  It also comes with a doodle, hand-drawn by yours truly :).

Best Graphic Novel!

Woo Hoo!  Looks like my Space Chickens are going to get an award this weekend at the San Mateo Fair.  It even includes a one year membership to the Peninsula Arts Council :)

I want to thank everyone who made this possible (including the pigships).  I think Captain Cluck would definitely be proud!

If you've got some innovative know-how, then there's no need to hurry!  Just check out this tortoise and his slightly modified rocket ;)

You can probably tell by the different painting and inking techniques, but I had to post an old illustration for this week's Illustration Friday.  I have a good excuse though, because my schedule has been MAD crazy recently. Here's the down-low:

I just came back from an epic East Coast trip spanning three states. . then immediately after that, I was hired last minute to help illustrate for this moving documentary about the life of mothers in WWII Japanese internment camps.  It's a short deadline, followed by a children's book conference in Corte Madera. .so once again, the blog's going to be a little sparse for a while :(.

However, I can leave you with pictures of a little something I got in the mail today:

That's right folks. . my first published picture book!!  It was 10 long months of hard work, patience, and collaboration with my fellow partner-in-picture-book-crime Jennifer Butenas. . but I definitely think the end result was well worth the effort.

I need some time to process things but will have ordering information for signed copies of A Moment in Time soon :)
