I recently had the pleasure of creating the illustrations for Little Bird Meets Anne Marie, the second book in this series by by Loni Hoots! This sweet children's poem features the adventures of a little red bird and his new squirrel friend. It is now available on Amazon.
I had fun creating some new miniature comics for the River Des Press Expo this month. These tiny comic books measure about 4.25 by 5.5", and feature three silly stories. I originally created The Terrified Pterodactyl comic back in 2011, and I decided to print a few more copies this year. The Amethyst Ant and The Evil Weevil are two new stories. Each of these miniature comics was hand-bound, and there are limited copies available in my shop!
*The Amethyst Ant*
This little ant story follows a curious ant who discovers an amethyst. When the amethyst disappears, his friends must help him rescue it!
*The Terrified Pterodactyl*
The narrative of this little dinosaur book follows a frightened pterodactyl who has just hatched and finds himself alone in the world. When he learns to fly, he at first enjoys his new activity. However, he soon learns that he is frightened of some of the new things he discovers!
*The Evil Weevil*
This silly little comic follows a sly weevil and his destructive journey throughout a tree. When the weevil wakes for the day, the other animals better watch out!
I wanted to share a few photos of my newest story book, A Swim in the River. This book was commissioned by my aunt for her grandson - how fun! I enjoyed creating a picture book featuring life within a river, through watercolor illustrations.
Throughout this book, follow the story of a little fish and his daily journey through a stream. Meet all of the other creatures the fish encounters on his trip! This illustrated story book allows a young reader to engage with a narrative and come up with his or her own words while looking through the pages. View this book in my shop, and on Amazon!
Here's a couple of pages from the next two coloring books I'm working on: a Woodland Coloring Book & a Creatures of the Water Coloring Book.
I am excited to announce that a selection of my work is now available at The Heirloom Room! This fun shop is located in Antique Row on Cherokee Street in downtown St. Louis, and it features a beautifully curated selection of home decor, furniture, gifts and local art. Some of my favorite items included adorable handmade plush elephants and fun animal napkin rings. You can now find a selection of my original greeting cards, postcards and illustrated books in this unique shop. Stop by their Facebook page for more photos and information.
I'm an illustrator with an affinity for octopi. I love using watercolor and ink, and really enjoy working with the book form. View some of my story books, coloring books, and critter illustrations in my shop. Also, visit my Facebook page & Instagram feed.
