Oxford Comma

I was honored to create a couple medical illustrations featured in my smarty-pants sister (and recently tenured) Dr. Bridget Sweet's new book, soon published through Oxford University Press.

I've always been an anatomy nerd, so this was a lot of fun to flex some science muscles this summer!

Froggy Freebies

©2018 ME
Spring 2019 is going to be popping with free pre-order swag to help celebrate the release of And the Bullfrogs Sing, summer 2019!

Which means, summer of 2018 involves a lot of freebie design on my part... I live and work IN THE FUTURE.

Here's a sneak of the art for upcoming bookplates in a classic black and white illustration format.

New Book Alert!

Calamity Jane and the Wild Horse Race
Pioneer Valley Books has recently published a tall tale about Calamity Jane that I was lucky enough to illustrate.  This is a very fun early reader with an emphasis on literacy for all kids.

The books are also priced extremely well and group discounts apply.  You can order straight from their web site.

In Living Color

What is THIS I see?! Why it's all the color spreads for my bullfrog illustrations that will be published by the amazing Holiday House in 2019, looking back at me!

It always feels extremely satisfying to see illustrations reach the color draft stage.

Soon we will make those final tweaks and then I just sit back, bite my nails and wait for it's book birthday!
