What’s new? Here’s what I’ve been up to…

Illustration by John LechnerThis past week I had the honor of being interviewed on the website There’s A Book, by a 3-year-old book enthusiast named Turkeybird. He was a tough questioner, but I think I held my own! It was nice to talk about my books and my hobbies, and what books have influenced me. You can read the entire interview here.

The same blog also recently reviewed my book The Clever Stick, which was very nice.

I’ve also been contributing to the Creative Juices blog, including our What The Doodle challenge every other week. We pick a random word and create an image inspired by it, and above is my illustration for the word BREEZE. You can see what the other artists came up with on the Creative Juices blog.

In other news, I will be helping to teach the Illustrator’s Academy at the New England SCBWI conference this spring along with Dani Jones, Kerry Martin and Nicole Tugeau. The focus will be online marketing for illustrators. It should be interesting!

    I enjoyed reading your interview about “The Clever Stick”. I still need to pick up two copies! It’s also great to see your illustration “Breeze”. The line work and Edward Gory style hatching on his jacket are very cool. I hope teaching at the conference goes well.

    Woo! Am loving the new website design and all the updates 🙂 Your interview was great, by the way. Wish I could be there for the conference – break a leg!

    I love the drawing. It really speaks to me in so many ways.
