A Cover for SCBWI Bulletin



I was asked to work on the cover of SCBWI Bulletin for their September-October 2013 issue.

The only requirement was to include a kite on the illustration. I wanted to illustrate the kite as a main element in the composition instead of it just being… well, a kite.

Lucecita



Lucecita - Iguana Magazine - November/December 2011

Lucecita - Iguana Magazine - November/December 2011

I got the assignment to illustrate the story of “Lucecita” in late November. It was a super-rush (aka less than a week between sketches and finals) but as you are all already guessing, I took the project. The artwork was published on the November/December 2011 issue of Iguana Magazine and since my copies arrived in late December, I decided to post later. Holidays are a busy time for all of us!

Ruth & Naomi Made the Cover!



“The Little Lutheran” Magazine was kind enough to give me a story that is now running on its current issue – September 2011.

So here’s a little story. Because I HAVE to tell you a story and you know that. A couple of weeks ago on my bedtime routine, I checked my stats – like everyone does, of course. I saw some people coming from The Little Lutheran’s site. Uhm. Click. Surprise! I made the cover! “Look! Look! Chris! Looooook!” “Cool.” My husband is so immune to my overdoses of excitement by now and that is a good thing.

Jorge and Iguana Magazine



During the Spring I received a short story to illustrate for the July/August issue of “Iguana Magazine”. I immediately said yes knowing that “Iguana Magazine” is published in Spanish, it’s a children’s magazine and it aims to instill Latino pride to the children that read it. What else did I need to know? That the story was about a little boy that dreamed of Mermaids. There was no going back. Tight deadline and all, I took the project.
