Holiday Card 2017


I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday! Let's make the world a better place in 2018...

The card features the triskelion, Celtic symbol for progress, personal growth and improvement.

I did not think I would get a card done this year but I got an urge to draw a unicorn!

Cao Chong Weighs an Elephant on NSTA Trade Book List and Best STEM Book of 2018 List

I am so excited that the book I illustrated for Arbordale Publishing, Cao Chong Weighs an Elephant written by Songju Ma Daemicke is an NSTA Outstanding Trade Book, a list coordinated with the Children's Book Council and National Science Teachers Association.

The book was really a delight to illustrate. It is an engaging story and I loved researching costume and architecture for it's ancient Chinese setting.










UPDATE: Cao Chong Weighs an Elephant was also selected as a Best STEM BOOK for 2018 by the NSTA and CBC in addition to best trade book! A double honor! http://static.nsta.org/pdfs/2018BestSTEMBooks.pdf
