Fall 2016 Books Dept.
 Books Dept:      It's been a while since I visited Drawger, let alone posted an update, so here's what's been going on in the picture book department; quite a lot, actually.  The delightful "I Won a What" by Audrey Vernick was...
Paris/Time
I got a call from Andree Kahlmorgan at Time on Tuesday, while the world was still reeling from this attack. Time was / is doing a piece on the effect of the Paris attacks on children, and how to explain the vast evil that is afoot in the world. I do a lot of books for children, but...
Forty Years
It's been a while since I posted anything here- it's been a busy year, and often, at the end of the day, I'd rather just go outside and play. Last spring marked 40 years as a professional, having had my first illustration commissioned by Steve Heller for the New York Times...

"Winter" & New Kid Stuff
"Winter is for Snow" is a book that grew out of a picture. I'd created this image, in a rougher version, as a pro bono Christmas card for a hospice. I sent some cards out as a promo, and Rotem Moskovich at Disney (Hyperion Books) pinned it to her bulliten board- for five years....
New Work
I've been buried in book deadlines, and I've been missing Drawger. It's funny how editors ruminate over layouts and sketches and then everything is due all at once. I'm clear for awhile, so I'll be digging through all the fun posts. The book work has been really fun, but...
Linus is out Today!
My new book, Linus the Vegetarian T-Rex, was released today. I had a lot of fun with this from the character design to the painting... I used a textured background over an ink drawing and layered color on with photoshop. In some of the spreads, I scanned some real plants, and I used special...
Print Sale! School Fundraiser!
  Good Morning! A few weeks ago I proposed that us Drawgers could exchange prints of our work, especially children's book art, for our various charities’ fundraisers. Well, Steve Kroninger, Rob Dunlavey and Leo Espinosa stepped up and contributed signed prints from their books...
