As you may have noticed, I haven't updated on here for a while. In fact, this will be my last post over here - from now on, I'm officially making tumblr my home for posting news/sketches/etc.

I already posted about this over on tumblr, but I received a copy of the second Jungle Detective book in the mail last week!
I think one of the most exciting parts about working on children's books is getting to hold the final product and flipping through its pages - it's such a great feeling after spending so long staring at it on a computer screen. I'm really happy with the way this one turned out.
Murilla Gorilla and the Lost Parasol is due out this October 2013!
There is officially a second book in the Murilla Gorilla series! I actually finished working on this just a few months ago, and the release date is set for early this fall - exact date TBA. I thought I would share the cover and small snippet from the Simply Read Books catalogue.
I once again had the opportunity to work with Hello!Lucky stationery and letterpress out of San Francisco - this time on a set of 13 animal-alphabet themed illustrations for their new line of birth announcements. This project was a ton of fun, and as always Hello!Lucky were wonderful to work with. They do so much great work - check out their latest (and my new favourite) greeting card line printed with neon ink and gold foil.
