Fowl Play

This is my entry for the SCBWI Tomie dePaola Award. Oh, to snuggle a baby fox!
I woke up last Friday morning with this song in my head, and it all just came together...
It is also a small tribute to one of my all-time favorite movies:
If I am ever in a fight, I want Burgess Meredith on my side. Far Out!!!

Bionic Nina

The daily sketches in November were so fun, and I will get back to them, but I am going to have to put them on pause until I finish up a few things... Today I sent off the cover art and 76 spot illustrations for a project that I have been working on, so I am feeling super happy about that and will definitely share more about it when I can. The artwork I was planning on using for my last postcard was not very well-received at the MNSCBWI conference in October, so I am channelling my inner-Steve Austin for a newer... better... faster (?) six-million dollar bionic postcard. Now I am wondering if I have the chops to make it as a tv action hero and an illustrator and if six million dollars is too much money to spend on a promotional postcard...
