The cover for our forthcoming picture book, I WILL BE FIERCE, written by Bea Birdsong and illustrated by me is out! The book will be available May 2019.
Meanwhile my schedule for New York Comicon is shaping up, I will be speaking on a few panels as well as participating in a stellar group signing at Books of Wonder on Friday October 5th. I will be with Luke Pearson, Kazu Kibuishi, Molly Ostertag and many more. Find all the details here.
I hope you have a great week!
It’s a cozy rainy day here. I haven’t created any new illustrations because I’m pushing forward on Pashmina. I am producing 2-3 pages a day. It may seem like I’m not drawing but I’m drawing more than ever before! My deadline for completion is approaching. The book won’t be available until Fall of next year but I willcomplete it this summer. My publisher will then haveample time for corrections, production and of course marketing! I thought as I got closer I would feel calmer, but I just feel more nervous! I still have a good stretch to wait, so hopefully mynerveswill subside.
Meanwhile, we’ve updated our zazzle shop with loads of products. We have phone cases, wallet cases, kindle and ipad covers, pillows (!), mugs and more. They’re having a 22% off sale today only for all orders, use the codeLUVOURPLANET.
Also I will be at Trickster in Berkeley for a Mother’s day live drawing event on April 30th. If you’d like a custom drawing for mother’s day or just because, come by with a photo (on your phone is fine). Limited number of slots will be available.
That’s all from me! Back to producing pages ^_^
Very early in my career my hard drive crashed and I lost the full resolution files of my illustrations. Duel was one of them – and as my work has been featured on different websites I’ve been asked for it as a print. Sadly I cannot recreate it – but I did revisit it! It was so much fun – it gave me a chance to truly see where I’ve grown. I understand anatomy and character weight better, but also light and shadow. I still have a long way to go but I know from years of experience my best route to improvement is to keep drawing. ^_^
Meanwhile, this weekend I will be at the Urban Epicurean Fest in San Francisco selling prints, cards and calendars with the wonderful Lyla Warren ofLittle Brigade. She’s coming from Portland to share her lovelySeedlingswith you all! If you’re around please come by and say hello!
