At the end of January one of my favorite used book stores closed down. I'm sad to see them go. But, I was glad to take advantage of the great sale they were having and I'm now the proud owner of several new books. Small Pig by Arnold Lobel and Animal Stories by William Johnston are both full of wonderful illustrations. I couldn't put down Holes by Louis Sachar and now I'm on to The Cricket in Times Square. There is much inspiration to be found in these pages. What's been inspiring you lately?

This is Benny and his friend Squirrel. These two pals make an appearance on the new postcards that I just ordered for the SCBWI Winter conference in New York. Are you going to the conference, too?

Also, I just finished reading Between Shades of Gray, by Ruta Sepetys and I can't stop thinking about it. If you haven't read it yet, please do.
Ok, that's all for now. Back to drawing. Happy Tuesday!
