dreaming of the coast

This is an illo I did for the current August issue of Ideal Home Magazine in the UK. I love the feeling of this, it makes me want to jump in my car and take a short drive to the coast where the temperature is about 30 degrees cooler. I've had enough of the 109 degree heat we've been having for the last couple of weeks!

more little olympians!

Here's another little Olympian demonstrating his ability to make a mess by unraveling a toilet paper roll!

And finally, here's an illo of a girl learning how to walk with an Olympic torch carrier in the background. This was inspired by the editor's story of her little girl taking her first steps during the Olympics!

This is the next illo I did in the Olympic baby series for the current August issue of Babytalk Magazine. It shows babies reaching the developmental milestone of communicating!

This is illo #1 in a series I did for the August 2012 issue of Babytalk Magazine. My illos feature babies showing off their accumulating motor skills by competing in different baby-style events. Being able to turn over a bowl of spaghetti on his head shows that this baby has motor strength!

This week my illustrated recipe, "Maui Luau Sandwich", is featured in They Draw & Cook's "Summer Delights" recipe collection on the home page. I loved drawing this recipe! Thanks to TD&C for highlighting my illo!
