Food Rave

This is a new little bit of art I designed for Food-Rave, a place where you can go to find delicious recipes collected from all over the web. All the recipes link back to the original cooking blogs and their original authors. I found a great recipe for a baked chicken and rice dish that I am eager to try... In other news, you can find me on twitter now. My friend, Alicia, signed up and talked me into it. It is actually kind of a fun way to see what people are up to, publishing-related or not. For a stay-at-home-mom like myself, it is also a really nice way to feel like I am still connected to the outside world. Chirp, chirp!
p.s. Look and see what Christina, Shawn, Boni, and Elvis Poultry are up to!

C'est Bon!

I have fallen in love. Not with Chef Pierre, but with pen and ink. Previously, I had been inking with micron pens and having nice results. Who knew how much joy I would find with pen and ink!!! It is like painting with a pen, I love, Love, LOVE it!!! Chef Pierre was my first attempt, I have since inked and painted a whole spread from my book dummy. I have been catching-up since my illustration class: updating the old mailing list and a few fun projects. Oh, I also have some great news: saw the digital proofs from my book and they look great AND found out that the author is pleased with how it looks, too!

Proud Friend Moment!

I am very proud to announce that my friend Jen (who I have known since 7th grade!!!) has just written a book for a local publisher! I See Me! publishes wonderful personalized books for kids. Visit their website to check out "A Christmas Bear for Me" written by Jennifer Dewing and beautifully illustrated by Wilson Ong! So proud of you, Jen!
