Feliz Cumpleanhos, Baby



My son’s bd was on the 23th. Feliz Dia, mi amor.

An illustration that I did for the invitation to his bd, and the 3D sculpture made out of fondant for the bd cake. Cake girl is an artist!

I’ll post a nicer pick of the sculpture later today. I kept it!

SCBWI-AZ – Resignation



As of today, I’m no longer Co-Illustrator’s Rep for the Arizona Chapter of SCBWI. Any question about the Chapter, can be directed to Tanja Bauerle – our current Illustrator’s Rep.

I’m glad I had the opportunity to help the Illustrators in our Region.

Workshops – Update: Cummings + Hellmuth



One more week for Pat’s Workshop in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Two weeks for Claudine’s workshop in Sedona, Arizona. Can’t wait.

Pat Cummings – Workshop’s Update



All spots have been filled for the October 4th Workshop in Scottsdale, Arizona. We are 22. I can’t wait to see everybody’s pieces! Only two more weeks to go.

Initial sketches of assignments have been emailed to Pat and her comments are starting to come back. Haven’t received mine back yet. Here’s a sketch that I didn’t send. I decided to go with Rapunzel. I’ll post her later.

Claudine Hellmuth’s Workshop in Sedona



One more month until Claudine’s workshop! I can’t wait for her class. My buddy Debbi Pehrson Haun and I are taking the workshop. We signed up back in January!!

Claudine will give a 4 day collage class at the Sedona Arts Center. Class is full now but you can be put on the waiting list by calling the Center: (888) 954 4442.

You can find out more about her workshops here. While you are there take a look at her work and her site. Awesome website and really cool artwork.

Note to Reader – Check Debbi’s website – I had a lot of fun designing it.

Piggie’s Little World – V



After many moons, Piggies have finally left the Studio. I took some pictures while I was working on the last piece so you can see how neat my studio looks when I’m working with colored pencils. You really don’t want to visit when I’m working my mixed media pieces.

I don’t have a release date for “I Can Cook” yet. I’ll be sure to post the info as soon as I get the news from the EECI. I’ll include the list of retailers that will carry copies of the book. Can’t wait to see it printed!

A picture of the last piece for the project – a double spread activity page.
