Make The World A Better Place

This is a page from The Gardener (one of my very favorite picture books). Sarah Stewart and David Small were in town last weekend as keynote speakers for the Minnesota SCBWI Fall Conference. I feel so lucky that I got a chance to hear them speak about how they work, both together and separately. David and Sarah are both exceedingly humble and kind, the world is a better place for having them in it.

Everything Octopus was kind enough to feature Daniel Day Octopus over at their fab blog. Be sure to visit, they post the coolest articles and videos and find the most amazing octo gear! Cephalophiles rule!

Lastly but not leastly, the first in the series of piano music books that I have been illustrating was recently published! I'll have a giveaway when I get my copies, until then, here is the link to the book on the FJH Music Company's website!

Cooking up all sorts of fun stuff over here, hope this finds you well! xoxo
