Amazing 100 Years of My Grandma

My beautiful and sassy Grandma turns 100 on December 18th.  She is the most resourceful, hilarious, wise, vain, exasperating and loving person I know.  To help honor her, my family brainstormed her favorite sayings (which are many) and had me design it.  I chose to use some of her old photos and incorporated cardinals (her favorite bird) and a Christmas cactus, that she can make bloom all year round like she has magic green thumbs.  Happy Birthday Grandma, I love you so much.

Zoo News: penguins for you

I had so much fun illustrating this coloring activity sheet for Potter Park Zoo 's newsletter.  

The Magellanic Penguins are some of my favorite creatures. Did you know that older penguins of over ten years usually have solid black feet? 

But don't let that fact affect your creativity if you color them. Maybe your penguins are only 2 years old or they have plaid feet. I won't judge you or your artistic madness....
