Recently, I was asked by the lovely people at the Highlights Foundation to write a guest blog post for their website.
I’m not going to lie; the prospect was a little daunting, especially since this summer has been a little rough for me creatively. I haven’t really felt much like drawing. It certainly wasn’t the first time I felt that way, and I know it won’t be the last. So I decided to use it as an excuse to make some new images, and to work through some of my own stumbling blocks. Here it is, complete with rainbow poop*. And if you’d like to get more of these kinds of tidbits from me and some superstars of children’s literature, join us for our workshop “Storytelling Through Drawing” at Highlights from October 17-20.
Yes…that little, orange dog is my alter ego. To see the portfolio of images, click here.
*Since the theme of my summer seems to be rainbow poop, I had some fun die-cut stickers made. Next time you see me, hit me up for one. 🌈💩
