Yeah I know, I've been missing in action. I'm still here
under my pile of work, but I came out just to share
another piece that didn't make it into a book.
I did this piece for the new, Billie Holiday book
that will be coming out this fall. Sometime certain
pieces just don't make the cut. While this one didn't
I still adore it. Hope you like it. Have a wonderful

Hello Wonderful people!
I know it's been a while, but I'm up to
my neck in work right now. It's been
super busy around my little studio which is
a good thing. I have been working on a wonderful
book about the late Billie Holiday and her sweet
dog named, "Mister". I am finished with the
inside art, but we have been working on the
cover art over the past couple of weeks.
It's not as simple as just drawing something
and passing it in and everyone saying" It's beautiful
let's use that. It's perfect!" Nope, I presented this cover
and it didn't make the cut. They had something else
in mind for the cover and I will keep that under wraps
for now. The book is due out this fall. I will keep you
posted. I wanted to share with you the artwork.
Hope that you all are having a wonderfully creative

"Think Big" is one of the newest picture books that
I've been working on with Bloomsbury Books.
Award winning writer Liz Garton Scanlon is the amazing
author of the book. Liz encourages kids and parents to
of course, "Think Big", but about what? About art of course!!
The arts are slowly disappearing from our schools.
It's so important that we get our kids making all kinds of art.
Through dance, paint, music and yes even food. Come along
as Liz and I take you and your kid on a wonderful journey
through the arts! Due in store in early July 2012.

Inspired by all things retro and mid century,
I played around and came up these.
I'm still under my rock, but took sometime
to do a few doodles just for fun.
When I finally open my Etsy Store
I will be selling these a prints.
Okay, back to the lab to do some

The best part of life is having good friends and good friends that
become family, is even better.
My sister Coy and I always wanted a baby brother.
My Mom gave birth to a stillborn baby boy.
We named him Allan. Allan would have been
35. No one will ever take Allan's place, but
we have been blessed to have a wonderful
addition to our family. He came when we
where all in our 40's. He was raised by his own
wonderful family. Now adopted by us,
we get to have him as our very own brother.
This is the best kind of Oreo!
Love you guys

As some of you have noticed I have been posting a lot of late.
Only because I will be back on the work clock in a second or two.
I just wanted to spend a little time blogging with my friends.
I so appreciate ALL OF YOUR VISITS and COMMENTS. I really do.
Forgive me if I don't get back to you. I try. Mostly I always want
to leave you feeling good and inspired. The world takes so much
out of us. Leaving us empty and frustrated and sometimes depressed.
I encourage you to put back some joy by caring for you. Do something
you want to do. As said in the movie" The Help"," You is kind, You is
smart and you is important." You really are. Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great week.

I find that I am my most creative at 2:00 am.
For the last couple of nights I haven't been
able to sleep. It could very well be that I needed to
get these characters and plushies out of my
head. Have a wonderfully creative and restful weekend

A little Birdie told me to tell you that,
your hard work is going to pay off in a big way.
I know it's 2012 and the things that you've been
waiting for seem so far off, but really you are
just were you need to be. All is well and all will be
