January/February SCBWI Bulletin

I am happy to announce that the latest SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators) Jan/Feb Bulletin has featured three of my illustrations. (see pg. 6, 13, & 36). It was a joy to come up with submissions for the publication, and I am honored that they were able to use three of them.

I drew this little baby boy while visiting a indoor toddler-play-area at a local mall. (In Minnesota we have to put parks inside to help abate the effects of "cabin fever" from being cooped up in our homes over the long, winter months). This little boy was so intent and fixated on the little truck. Just learning to crawl, he was using all of his might to inch over to the toy that was just out of reach. Sometimes he would roll over onto his back and rest a bit, before trying again. I admired his patience and perseverance.
