Happy Halloween Everyone!

What a fabulous day!!! I just got my copies of Crow Toes Quarterly. It is a children's Literature Magazine based out of British Columbia.

I have 2 illustrations in the Fall 2007 Issue....It's one thing to see the original sketch and the coloured illustration...but seeing it published really makes it magical. You can click on the thumbnails above to check out the full illustrations.
Knowing that many wonderful children who read and subscribe to the magazine will see my work and smile, makes it such a dream for me. My passion is drawing and I love it!

Illustrations - Cookbook subsections complete!

I completed the 7 sections of the Corporate cookbook Project...All the proceeds go to charity, so I am very pleased with this work and the cause. I hope that the Company sells many wonderful cookbooks and that all my illustrations inspire people to buy one and to try some many fun and cute characters!!!

I also worked on a special project for a Christmas card today and it was a great experience...great client and great sense of humour....

Well I am off for now!
