Much news!

So, I've neglecting this blog like crazy. Does anyone read blogs anymore?

At any rate, there have been lots of nice things happening that I haven't bothered to post about in the last, oh, 6 months or so, so here's a few of them:

Quackers was chosen as the 2017 Jumpstart Read for the Record book! Read for the Record is on October 19th. Sign up on Jumpstart's website to read and help break the world reading record!

Paperback versions and Spanish language versions of Quackers (or Cuacua in Spanish) are available through Jumpstart's store.

Quackers is also a finalist for the Washington State Book Awards in the Books for Early Readers (ages 6 - 8) category.

There's a ceremony on October 14th at Seattle Public Library at 7 pm! It's free and open to the public!

Quackers is also a nominee for the 2017-18 Washington Children's Choice Picture Book Award. Kids in Kindergarten through 3rd grade throughout Washington state will spend the year reading and analyzing the nominees and vote for their favorite at the end of the school year!

Quackers was also awarded an Irma Simonton Black and James H. Black Honor Award. Behold a fancy certificate!

Snakes in hats

Just a couple of snakes out for a ramble.

Some little drawings

Just drawing with pencils. I try to squeeze these in during my breaks at work, or when I'm waiting at my kid's swim class. They are generally quick and fun to do, though I did spend a weirdly long time drawing that slug and snail. Much more time than was really necessary.

Happy Winter Solstice

It's that time of year again - time to draw snow and starry skies.

Ah, who am I kidding? I draw snow and starry skies year 'round.
