ABC's with Jakee

Time again to show what I've been doing during my part time gig.... Mother being my full time occupation that gives me all the joy, love, frustration, irritation, tests of patience, and complete fulfillment all rolled into one. In May I was approached through avenues of Wendy Lynn & Co. to illustrate a book for a young couple and their one year old son. "Jakee" was the star of the book and is featured in this 32 page picture book with every letter of the alphabet doing his favorite thing that coordinates with that letter.  It's a very special book for a very special boy. His parents are going to pursue publishing, and I will be very excited to let people know if and when they can get their copies.

So, it's been a while...

It's been a while, but I've been working hard, mostly as a mother, but as a late night illustrator too. I love the projects that I've been blessed to work on over the past year. Two books, no publishers, a bit of money, but a lot of fun.

This project was seriously fun. It is the product of a lot of work and collaboration with Marty Nemko, the author. It is still in the process of finding the right publisher. Hoping it will see print in the bear future.

This is the current book I'm working on, and this is only a sneak peak of what I'm doing.

This book is nearing completion. I've had the cutest model to work with and love the process of working with the sweet couple from Ohio and painting their little boy.
