Artwork donation that will be up for raffle to benefit PALA.
Tomorrow (Sept 29th) I’ll be traveling to Lancaster, PA for the 2014 PALA conference.  Honored to be accepting the Carolyn Field Award for “No Fits, Nilson!” not to mention sharing a panel with Greg Pizzoli and Judy Schachner. Gonna be fun.

Me with Ezra Jack Keats Award winning author @amedyckman at the Princeton Children’s Book Festival. That was one of the best kids lit events I’ve ever attended! Thank you for having me! And thanks to everyone who came out and bought books!

Detail from a recent magazine illustration job.

Detail from a recent magazine illustration job.

Sent off a spread from Tyrannosaurus Wrecks! to the Society of Illustrators for the Original Art Show in Oct.

It was also a Junior Library Guild Selection. And most importantly, it was written by SUDIPTA Bardhan-Quallen not Bardhan as printed on the certificate above.

 
This is “The Gum Drawer” Pt 2 Which is also a birthday card for my 90 year old Grandma. My siblings/cousins and I as we were.
Figure it’s safe to post here as she’s probably not on twitter.

My grandmother used to have a hutch drawer full of green felt pens, yellow lined paper pads and Wrigley’s gum. We used to call it “The Gum Drawer” Beech-Nut was the most favored flavor.
There was nothing better than a summer afternoon drawing with green pens and chewing gum til your jaw hurt.

There are too many self referential jokes in this birthday card to explain here. There’s only one thing to know… “Baby Friggin Monkey!!!” we saw for real at the Zoo on Sunday.

I know what we are doing this weekend! Have a Happy and Safe Memorial Day weekend. Or, as my kids call it, Candy Parade Day! Seriously, though thanks to those who sacrificed, and I’m not talking about Dodge Ball.
