Jesus & Mary Magdalene
March 30th, 2011

This is a piece that appears in April’s issue of The Little Lutheran magazine for kids. It was a nice surprise to see it also made the cover.

I finished up this piece a few days before Ocee was born. It will be fun to look back on projects and remember at what point in my pregnancy I did them. Unfortunately a lot of the memories will be, “Oh, I remember that project, I had to quit in the middle of illustrating that spread to throw up.”

I didn’t get to make a note this morning (but I think my husband made one) because of a certain little guy needing to eat constantly, so here’s a cute picture to look at instead.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll get it together and continue with the challenge.

Getting back in the swing of things
January 24th, 2011

Thanks so much for all your sweet comments on O’Hare! We’re still getting our schedule worked out and this week and I’m easing back into work things but taking it slow. I have some baby bib and baby bedding designs on the calendar this week which I thought were perfect timing!

Here’s a piece I recently completed for a math workbook for Creative Teaching Press. It’s in my found object style.
