New Project -- Twirl Girl Bracelet Book

Here are some samples from a new book I illustrated, Twirl Girl Friendship Bracelets Book, that was recently released. The book was for Sterling Publishing in New York City. It is a cute book that shows tweens how to make cool and snazzy friendship bracelets. For some reason, I am completely unable to make these bracelets. I must not have the attention span. My two daughters love making these. They were so excited when the publisher sent me a sample of each finished bracelet so that I could draw them for the book. They were a hit!

Recent Exhibit

Yes, I know I am behind in all this news but I am really going to try to stay on top of my blog. Call it a belated New Year's resolution. In May, I had the privilege of being a part of the Hope Festival of the Arts exhibition. Also in the show was the oh so talented, Derek Anderson, Mike Wohnoutka, and Sara Weingartner.

ND Reading Association Conference

I thought I would post a few quick snaps from a recent event I attended. In April I was a guest author/illustrator at the North Dakota Reading Associations annual conference. It was a really great event. I always enjoy meeting teachers. My family and I had a wonderful time.
