New Personalized Books
October 2nd, 2013

I have about four books released this month and I’ve been really excited to share these since I stared them last year. I had the opportunity to work with I See Me books on a couple of new board book projects. This was the first time I worked on a personalized book and it was such a fun challenge to make sure things were placed just right so personalization could happen at an automated level.

1-2-3 Blast Off With Me! can be personalized with images and text:

You can see the entire book here. There’s also a cute coloring book to match!

Hello World! is a book for new babies and can be personalized with images and text (love this cover!):

You can flip through it here.

New Halloween Book
September 23rd, 2013

I have a new Halloween book out from Innovative Kids (available exclusivley in Sam’s Club stores now). They are a very clever counting book with clear buttons to push on each character throughout the book. My kids have not stopped playing with them since I got the samples a few months back. It’s very much like popping bubble wrap that you can do over and over again.

There’s also a Christmas book coming out too. More to come on that, but here’s a little peek:

New Stuff!
March 16th, 2012

Sorry to have been neglecting the blog. Seems like I’ve been micro blogging on facebook more and more. I’ve also had deadline, after deadline since the beginning of the year on top of consulting with 11 talented illustrators and trying to build up my licensing portfolio during some free time. Licensing is taking a front seat this year and I’ve been actively building collections and doing a little bit of style re-branding too. I’ve created a new logo and thought I’d share some sneaky peeks of some new licensing pieces I’ve been working on.

ROBOTS for sale
January 24th, 2012

I mentioned in a earlier post that the Woog is going on her first mission trip to Alaska. I am so proud of her bravery and heart to go. She’s been raising money for the trip which is $1250 (big shout out to all her friends & family who’ve donated), she only has $250 more to go! So, to help her out I’ve made some original Junk A Doodles art to help her reach her goal. She helped pick out all the found objects and I put them together. Five are on sale now and five more will be added this week. All 10 are for sale now until Tuesday the 31st and then they are gone forever! They are only $20 (not bad for an original piece of art!) and shipping is only $0.20 to cover Etsy’s listing fee and I’m donating the rest of the shipping costs.

Go check out the shop for a look at them all. Here’s my favorite, little ERNIE:

If art isn’t your thing and you want to give a $1 or $2 to the Woog, she’d really appreciate it. You can donate any amount here:

Robots
January 23rd, 2012

I have robots on my mind this week that I hope (fingers crossed) I’ll get to show tomorrow so I thought I’d show you what I found looking through the new Creative Teaching Press catalog. I did this bulletin board set for them last year and I loved every minute of it!

I love making Junk A Doodles robots and this is the robot that started my junk style.

Hopefully more on robots tomorrow!!

It’s finally fall!!
September 28th, 2011

Thought I’d post some fall themed work. I illustrated a cute bi-lingual pumpkin patch story for Highlight’s High Five magazine:

And I have a pop-up Halloween card out this year from R.S.V.P:

Tomorrow I’ll show you some of the fall bibs I designed that are available at CVS.
