a highlight of 2014…

cover poetry
I was asked by Scholastic Education Canada to create a few illustration spots for a new publication this year….which lead to 4 illustrations. One was picked for the front cover of the book.  A tremendous honour for me to be included in this piece with other very talented illustrators and authors.

So much fun….

Celebrations Poster 2014_final email

Last weekend I lead a couple of character workshops with some super terrific kids.  The characters we created were simply awesome and gave me a great idea for a book character. Can’t tell it’s a secret.   The Latcham Gallery’s exhibit surrounding us was artwork by kids from local schools. Totally inspiring.
