Rainbow Boy’s almost here!

It feels like yesterday when my agent Claire sent me the first email about Rainbow Boy. Beaming Books was publishing it, and looking for an illustrator – and they were hoping I would be interested in doing it. A picture book about a gender non-conforming boy who loves tutus AND basketball? What’s not to like?!??!Continue reading “Rainbow Boy’s almost here!”

My Octopus Teacher.

Wow. Have you seen this stunning film? Wow. I have always been enraptured by the beauty and mystery of everything under water. The impossibly saturated colours of all that swims, the astounding design of the creatures. I have always felt more connected to my own life, somehow, when I’m under water. Which is why IContinue reading “My Octopus Teacher.”

Popsicles.

Last week the heat was surprisingly tenacious here in BC. My kids and I gathered on a beach towel in our backyard after they had jumped in their kiddie pool for the 76th time. I brought out popsicles for them and smiled as they dripped gleefully all over themselves, reminded that even though 2020 hasContinue reading “Popsicles.”

Dog days of summer.

This week was International Dog Day (I would never know if not for hashtags), and it reminded me of my dog growing up, Denny. His fav thing was to waddle out into the sun (he was rotund, guys) and lay in an empty flower box in the sun. I mean, it’s not a BAD wayContinue reading “Dog days of summer.”

Close encounters!

GUYS. I believe I encountered a UFO whilst riding my bike last night. I have drawn this photo-realistic evidence as proof – see my arm in the foreground to see how close I came to the creature. Please forward to your nearest FBI or X-Files agent asap! Unrelated note: People are funny things, hey? (PLEASEContinue reading “Close encounters!”

Quarantine art club

Sheesh, friends. This new normal, this quarantine life – it’s not easy, right? I don’t do well with unknowns, with large fears, with missing people. I am thankful for so many things, and also struggling with so many things. I know we all are. For me, music helps. Dancing helps. Working out helps. Hugging myContinue reading “Quarantine art club”

With the help of my agent Claire at The Bent Agency, I’ve been hired by Beaming Books to illustrate a really adorable picture book entitled “Rainbow Boy” (written by Taylor Rouanzion)! I’ve been working on it for a little while, but it was officially announced this week in Publisher’sContinue reading ““Rainbow Boy” book announcement”

“Stranger Things” S3 art!

Oh my word, who else loved the most current season of “Stranger Things”, in all of its’ 80s mall glory?! It was just so fun! I was really inspired by the first season to do my own Golden Book concept – you can see that here. I also just really loved the characters, so IContinue reading ““Stranger Things” S3 art!”
