i found these deep in an old hard drive a little while ago. i think they are from about 2008? i put them together to show book ideas back before i’d done any books, but they didn’t have any stories to go with them.

Jon Klassen won TWO Caldecott awards last week! He received the medal for his wonderfully funny and sweet book This Is Not My Hat and an honour for Extra Yarn, written by Mac Barnett. The Caldecott Medal goes annually to the illustrator of the most outstanding children’s picture book. AMAZING! What an inspiration.

This is some interior artwork from This Is Not My Hat that I used for front and back cover the catalog for Walker Books, Candlewick Press, and Walker Books Australia at the London Book Fair and the Bologna Book Fair. The Bologna Fair is happening right now, and I am at it!

I illustrated this book written by Ted Kooser. It’s not coming out till March, but it’s up on amazon now, so I figure it’s okay to post the cover.
