Oh, hello!

Oh, dear.  I'm afraid it's been too quiet around here lately.  Behind the scenes there's been lots of drawing, inking, cross-hatching, manuscript revising, fairy sketching, website updating, and beach strolling.

After a spin around the Olympic Peninsula (which we loved), we're currently in Northern California.  Soon we'll head east towards Telluride, Colorado, where Bill will attend a photo conference and I'll attend a picture book writing workshop taught by Liz Garton Scanlon (which I'm super excited about!).  

In other news, I've been loving the web comic, Alfred, by Abigail and Emily Halpin.

And I'm a little bit obsessed with my friend, Aaron Bagley's, Sleep Comics.

Also, have you seen which books are on the Caldecott radar over on The Horn Book?  It's an interesting list.

I hope you're enjoying these first days of autumn wherever you are.  And I hope that sometime this week you'll find yourself curled up in a cozy chair with a good book.

Tiny sketchbook

My new, tiny sketchbook came in handy at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West a few days ago.  If you're ever in Cody, Wyoming, don't miss this great museum!

Also, I finally added a new post to The Map & The Way.

And here's a great interview with Author/Illustrator, Jon Klassen, over at Art of the Picture Book. (They have lots of other wonderful interviews, too!)

Oh, and if you haven't visited Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast lately, go take a look!  There's lots of great stuff there!

And just one more thing... There are lots of cool book reviews over at Design of the Picture Book.  Check it out! :)

Painting outside...

Yesterday my dad, husband, and I went on a hike.  They did some fishing and I did some sketching.  A lovely time was had by all. 

Stayed tuned tomorrow for the results of the Summer Showers giveaway.  Hooray!
