On Deck

Pitchers and catchers for my favorite baseball team report today to Goodyear, Arizona (in the, ahem, CACTUS League) which has long been regarded by the most devoted fans, and by this blog, as a celebrated holiday. It's been a long, dark winter, but finally spring is on the horizon... and also possibly (hopefully maybe someday eventually) a brighter future. It won't be a particularly good year for my guys, wins and losses-wise, but if there's baseball being played, I'm there. Let's go. Batter up.

Books Read in 2015

I've neglected this blog lately in favor of (a) more writing than artmaking, and (b) more sharing on Instagram and Twitter. But it's a new year, and that means it's long past time to take a look back at the books I read in 2015.

Last year, I somehow (shockingly) only read 16 books all year long, so this year I stepped up my game. As usual, my favorites are in bold:

p.s. If you're wondering about the inspiration behind the illustration above, you won't want to miss THIS.

Patterns and play

My creative work the last few months has mostly been writing and some sketches to go along with those stories, so not the kind of thing I'd share here. Also not the kind of thing that lets my pastels (and my beautiful turquoise art desk) come out to play, so I thought I'd play around a little today. Enjoy!

The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (of which I am a member) recently launched a monthly prompt for illustrators. The prompt word for June is Bounce, and this is my entry.
