Tomie dePaola Contest Entry

This is the illustration I submitted for the 2012 Tomie dePaola Contest. The guidelines were to illustrate an excerpt from Chicken Licken, by P.C. Asbjornsen. Chicken Licken and the other animals meet Turkey Lurkey as they travel to tell the king that the sky is falling.

The winner will receive a trip to the 2012 SCBW Winter Conference in New York. Wish me luck!

The Reluctant Elf

The Reluctant Elf is about a girl who discovers the joy of giving. It was published in The Los Angeles Times, Kids’ Reading Room on Christmas day.  It was so much fun to do! I plan to do more watercolor in 2012.

Happy New Year!

Dad, I look up to you!

My dad is someone I admire very much. He taught me how to look forward and walk steady. To stretch for higher goals. To stand tall, but not over others. To enjoy life’s journey and invite others to come along.

Thanks Dad, for these gifts and so much more.

Happy Father’s Day!
