New book (almost) and new blog



Well, folks, because I've illustrated a book, to be launched in May (details to follow!), I've been working on a new illustration blog. I've got a start on it, and will add more over the next couple days...so if you're interested in seeing all of my illustration in one place, here's the link:

How exciting to have your first book coming out! Its so cool you got to work on a children's book while waiting for your own child as well.

I checked out your other blog too!

I love the Pippy Longstocking illustration. If you ever make prints of it, I would love to buy one!!!!! It takes me back in time to the joys of childhood.

I want an autographed copy of that book!!!
Added your new blog to my "favorite links" on my blog (if that's ok with you?).
I think so far my favorite illustration is the "Pippy Longstocking" looking one. I think you should consider selling prints (you can limit them and sign them)...I would buy one in a heartbeat!
Beautiful work! If I ever write children's books, you're hired! (If I can afford you, that is!). You have a brilliant future ahead of you.

I started to post a comment last night- but in the middle of doing so Z woke up from a nightmare!

This is so exciting! I can;t wait to purchase. I bought the Lonsome Puppy- which Z loves but I also bought one by another Japanese author/illustrator called Emily's Balloon. We have read that book 20x's a day for the past 3 days. Very simple and sweet(I love the illustrations- it won some awards in Japan) and really speaks to Z on a level she can relate to. the
author is Kamako (sp?) Sakai. If you are interested!

LOVE the chair- Flynn is going to adore it.

you can't give that book to your daughter, because you ARE cool, and you have the pictures to prove it!

Please let us know how we can purchase a copy of that book! (And how to get it autographed, if possible?)
