Reading with the Kiddos

July 14, 2016 — 1 Comment

It’s been a lot of fun to be part of the inaugural “Books and Music” summer series event at SwitchBack Coffee Roasters. I was invited to design the poster and participate in the event. Today I got to read the two children’s books I illustrated to a group of local kids, and leave behind some coloring pages.

New Toy!!

Going digital on my new Cintiq 22HD Touch with Kyle Webster‘s Ultimate MegaPack gouache brushes! Reworking an illustration from one of my children’s books seemed to be the quickest way for me to get started these new tools. Loving it. Still, I don’t want to drop my traditional tools-n-skills any time soon.

Fun to Wear?

October 30, 2015 — Leave a comment

supermanA snapshot in time (circa 1979). Me in my Superman Underoos. Fruit of the Loom said they were “Fun to wear” and I thought I’d test that theory while Trick-or-Treating. My goal was the best Halloween costume ever, so I accessorized my outfit with a large bath towel, bright red rainboots, and some sweet blue tights (not sure where mom got those?). It all seemed a good idea at the time until it was game time and I actually had to go outside in my underwear. Oops! Well, I’m laughing now.
