It's gray and chilly outside... a perfect day for staying inside with a good friend and a nice pot of tea.
My friend, Eliza Wheeler, along with Linda Ashman, author of the picture book I'm currently working on, are part of a new group blog called Picture Book Builders. The blog was launched at the beginning of September and already has several really informative posts about making books for kids. Take a look!
And here's a peek of the illustrations I did for Storytime Magazine of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
Happy Weekending to you!

Hello there! I drew some rabbits.
And here are a few links to help get your week started...
A really wonderful blog post, as well as a great podcast interview, from Author/Illustrator, Mike Curato. Mike's debut picture book, Little Elliot Big City, was recently released and I'm so very excited about this beautiful book! If you haven't seen Little Elliot yet, please go find a copy as soon as you can.
I've really been enjoying Carter Higgin's blog, Design of the Picture Book. If you haven't visited Carter's blog lately, I hope you'll take a few minutes to have a look.
A helpful blog post from Illustrator, Clio Chiang, about watercolor skin tones, which I believe I came across in a facebook post from Illustrator, Diandra Mae. (Thanks, Diandra!)
Marla Frazee's new book, The Farmer and The Clown, is incredibly lovely. Have you seen it yet?
Throughout September I'll be interviewing the recipients of the 2014 SCBWI mentorship awards over on KidLitArtists.com.
Stay tuned for some book giveaways in the coming weeks! Now I'm off to draw and paint. I hope you are, too! :)
