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 :)


  1. Awesome! You have major bragging rights with how your schedule is now! Congratulations.

  2. Congratulations! Thats fantastic. Nice take on the topic too! :)

  3. This is so cute! I love that bewildered, gobsmacked face on the poor bunny.
    And congratulations on your book! I wish you all the best with your future successes!

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I feel sorry for the hare. . he was totally prepped for a fair competition ;)
