Some new changes to my website went up over the weekend. Now I've added a 'PDF Tearsheet' link, so visitors can download samples of my current illustration work. I've been meaning to put up a tearsheet for years... but never got around to it before.

It's fun having such a big illustration printed. It's awesome to think it will be seen by thousands of people in schools and libraries.

Today is the day that I'm featured on Elizabeth Dulemba's blog! It's a fun bit of bio and there is a free book giveaway too. In it I reveal all my secrets of how I networked my way into doing the book 'Peter Panda Melts Down!' using just a bus ticket and a bit of cleverness.

It's spring on the drawing board today. I think I fell in love with the square sponge brush for blobbing out backgrounds.

Here's the cover of my latest picture book. It's about a fire dog and takes place in a fire house. I've always wanted to do a fire house book.
There's a big slurpy doggy kiss on the cover. I like how the cover typography came out. I also like fire engines, but red is a difficult color to do because it just gets too red!

I have a newfound appreciation for National Geographic photographers. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to get 25 ducks to all pay attention to a picture book?
