FREE easter downloads

Our monthly post is up over on my group blog, We Love to Illustrate. This month, we all did something fun for kids to celebrate Easter. There's a lot of variety, we all did something a bit different and as usual, my fellow illustrators came up with some stellar images. We have such a great group! You can download my activity page, right here, under the image, or go check them all out, right here. Happy downloading!

pink light design

I'm so excited to share with all my Blogger friends some awesome news! I'm now represented by Pink Light Design! I'll be doing Licensing work for the surface design industry. I'll still be working with my kid-friendly images, but also mixing it up a bit and taking on some other subjects as well. I also have images available for licensing through Gibson and Holt, in the UK.

I'll be showing at Surtex, in NY, in May. Well, my work will be there, anyway, with Pink Light Design. So, if you're at the show, stop by their booth and say Hi to Mary Beth, she's an awesome designer and super nice, too!

Well, I better get back to work, lots to do to prepare for the show!

fan mail

I had a delightful surprise arrive in the mail a couple of days ago. Fan mail! Ashley, a 3rd grader, from Mrs. Besecker's class wrote me the most darling letter, telling me how much she liked my designs and she also included a drawing of hers, that she did as a re-creation of my bunny face card. So sweet, don't you think?

I'm going to return the fan mail and send Ashley a special surprise, too. But, in case she reads my blog, I won't give away the secret, yet. I never thought in a million years that I would ever receive fan mail, so thanks, Ashley!

Illustration Friday - cultivate

Here's a detail of a large piece I did recently for a product that's not been released yet. It was perfect for this week's Illustration Friday theme of cultivate, so I thought I'd show this "sneak peek." I'll post the whole piece once the product is out. It will be used on a PlayMat for babies. Have a great week, everyone!

crazy about patterns

Did you know I'm crazy about patterns? Yep, it's true and I've been making a lot of them lately. Most of what I've been working on is hush hush for now, but I did this one today and decided to post it here on the 'ole blog. I'm calling it Sweet as Candy, because it reminds me of chocolate and cotton candy.
