New Children's Book released

I am happy to announce the recent release of my most recent children's book I have illustrated (book #20 I believe) .... GORDY AND THE MAGIC DIET, published by Special Kids Enterprises. 

Available Here


Great little story written about a little boy you thinks a monster lives in his tummy because it hurts often after he eats. Gordy learns he has to follow 'the magic diet' to get the monster to go away. He also has to learn how to avoid temptations, such as his Grandma's Double-Fudge Chocolate Cake! Super great book for those who have children or know children who have to adjust their diet due to allergies or medical conditions. And equally great to educate other children about food allergies. 

This book I created with acrylic inks, watercolor, acrylic, pastel and colored pencil. I as well did a lot of hand lettering in the book, which is always jolly good fun. The team I worked with in Chicago were amazing. Available at Amazon, bookstores or at the official Gordy website.

American Baby Illustrations

Here is a few newly published illustrations that I did for the Feburary 2012 issue of American Baby magazine. The article was about nervous new moms in caring for their newborns. I loved this project and working with art director, Laurene Chavez.

The Urban Garden

I was happy to create an illustration for an article entitled, "The Urban Gardan", for the March issue of The Fort Wayne Monthly.  I  love (❤) illustrating  maps and type and I equally love gardening so this was a perfect match.

Fancy New European Map !

I had the pleasure of recently working with Lymari Acevedo,  art director for AAA Traveler magazine.  I cooked up a 'sweet' map of European tours.  How great does a Beatles Tour in England,  French Wine Tour, a  Chocolate Tour in Brussels and the Beer Tour in the Czech Republic sound?   Super great project to work on.

Red Ballon Bookstore

Here is a photo from a book event I did last month at the Red Balloon Bookstore in St. Paul, MN. I love that store. We were celebrating the release of my newest picture book, The Mischievous Mom at the Art Gallery, by Key Porter Books. Thanks Red Balloon! Did I mention that I love that place?
