Illustration Friday - Surprise

Sometimes surprises that are suppose to be happy don't exactly turn out that way.

May I Please Have a Cookie?

Some one asked if I would put my book up on my blog site. Here it is. The more publicity the better! The book was published in the Scholastic Reader series (level 1.) For those of you that don't typically read easy readers, a level 1 is geared for Kindergarten and 1st graders. It's about a little alligator that tries silly ways to get a cookie from his mom but learns in the end that good manners are the way to go.

I found a nice review of it on the internet... http://www.greenlakelibrary.org/kidslit/archives/007291.html

Here's the cover...

And here is an illustration from the book...

Illustration Friday - Blue




This is me every winter. I'm always cold. (Maybe it's because I'm too cheap to turn up the heat.)

New Technique



Here is a new technique that I've been messing around with. I'm working on a story that needs a less cartoony style.

SCBWI Contest




This is a piece I did for the SCBWI illustration contest entitled "Old School, New Year." I'm happy to report that it was one of the winning entries.

The desk looks just like the one I had in elementary school. It had a little hole in the top for a bottle of ink to sit in. They never let us have any ink though - bummer!

Barnes and Nobles Story Hour

I will be reading my new picture book at the Barnes and Nobles in Leominster Mass on Monday November 7th at 10:00 a.m.
