Bullfrog Launch

That one time when my mom loaned me a vintage sea foam dress (that my Grandma had sewn for her in the 60s) and I signed my debut picture book for a whole mess of people I love, in the prettiest pet store in the midwest and we all ate grasshopper brownies and tried not to tap on tanks full of webby-toed creatures and I exploded into a cloud of glitter....

And, scene.


My Bullfrog Buddy

Finally meeting this bullfrog in person has been my favorite part of the year!

Have you met him yet? You can pick up a copy wherever books are sold. Or check out at your local library!

Thank you Holiday House for gifting me the opportunity to illustrate this gorgeous picture book! Also, I love you.

Film-eee

 

My kid has been 'camping' in my home office this summer. So naturally we have started collaborating on these weird little movie-lets. Pop some corn & check them out! *SOUND UP!*

Instagrammy Summer

I've been really slacking on blogging this spring/summer!  But I am trying to post new art regularly on Instagram.  Give me a follow: https://www.instagram.com/k8cosgrove/

With the release of two books that I have illustrated: And The Bullfrogs Sing and The Ghost of Blackbeard, it's been such an exciting and busy time!

Subsequently, all the balls (my balls?) are not successfully staying in the air ...

However, I'm in the process of scheduling some public storytimes and other fun bookstore / library events for the fall, so I'll be updating my blog with that information very soon!

Analog Art


The Runaways by me
My PAINFULLY old Mac and Creative Suite design programs need a desperate upgrade. 

Since a grant was unfortunately not granted and a project paycheck was delayed, I've decided to hold a summer art sale with the hopes of raising cash to make new tech a reality.

Here are two of my favorite drawings so far that may make the cut for the big: Analog Art sale. More details to come!

Bullfrogs & Bookplates


 May brings Bullfrogs and bookplates. 

And The Bullfrogs Sing: A Life Cycle by David L. Harrison, illustrated by me and published by Holiday House drops the end of next month. But you can pre-order today wherever you buy books!

And keep an eye on this webby, because I'm going to be celebrating the big launch with a few neato bookplates and bullfroggy bookmarks! Supplies limited...
