Kew Gardens


My book is on the Kew Gardens website! 

Apparently, you CAN order it for delivery into the US.


Book sighting by some of my friends from the chateau residency!

Sneaky Artist Podcast


I had a wonderful time discussing illustration and sketching with Nishant Jain.

A lot is changing in publishing, illustration, and maybe everything. I have been in the business for 30 years and the one thing you can count on is change. But there is hope.

Listen here.

Shari Lyon has decided to release the 4th book of the Read To Me Sing To Me series herself.

I had a wonderful time doing the art for HADORI STANDS UP!

Shari and I first worked together on Paw, Hoofs, and Wings, the official children's book for the San Diego Zoo Centennial.

This is a much more serious book. It is such a beautiful story. It is another book that takes place at night but the art is darker than Paw, Hoofs, and Wings. 

The story is about a hippo who stands up to protect her friends from poachers.

You can back the Kickstarter until the end of June.


Sing with the animals!

There are some sketch tiers! I know I have a lot of friends who love hippos.

And I LOVE the Sticker Sheet!

Back it here:

I went to Auckland, New Zealand in April for the Urban Sketchers Symposium. I will do a longer post soon after my deadline crunch but it was an amazing experience!
