New Book Release! The Clock Struck One

My newest picture book that I have illustrated was released this month from Lerner Publishing. It is titled, The Clock Struck One - A Time Telling Tale, written by the talented author, Trudy Harris. It takes the traditional nursery rhyme, Hickory Dickory Dock, and gives it a modern retelling. Mixed throughout the book are an assortment of clocks, to help children learn how to tell time. It was super fun to work on. It has a lot of energy and things flying all over. It was my kind of book. Here are a few images from it.

MN SCBWI Conference - Great Event!

Quick little post, with a photo of me giving my presentation to the MN SCBWI conference a few weeks ago. It was a really great conference. It was so fun meeting the attendees and talking to them about their writing and/or their illustration work. There was creative energy in the air... I was honored to be able to speak at the event.

MN SCBWI Conference

I am so excited to have been asked to be one of the speakers at this years annual Minnesota SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) conference. The conference will be on September 12th, 2009 in St. Paul, MN. In addition to giving a lecture to the attendees, I will be critiquing portfolios and I will be on a panel with my agent, Deborah Warren of East/West Literary Agency. It will be a great time.

Studio Tour

Craig, my wonderfully talented architect husband, designed and built me a beautiful new studio to work in. It is truly an inspiring place to work. I thought I would post some photos for all to see. Lerner Publishing did a write up about it along with a few photos on their blog. Check it out: .
