he woke up on the dark side. He can be a real grouch in the morning. (he's a little like his mom) He has become obsessed with Star Wars. Riding around town with his Darth Vader mask on. Our coffee table has been taken over with Star Wars legos & I have 1/2 a sketchbook full of doodles- all his favorite characters. (I'll post some of those soon they're pretty funny) I didn't know much about Stars Wars but I am quickly learning.

The summer carousel spins round and round.
I feel my stomach go up and down.
The warm breeze rushes by.
A sparkle of wonder appears in little eyes.
The crowd looks on and mommies wave- HI.
An elephant, a zebra, a painted camel glide by.
The music stops and we begin to slow.
Everyone cheers, it is time to go!
Poem: by me OK, so it's not my forte but it's fun to play around with.
This piece of art felt like it needed a poem.
I gave myself 20 minutes to pull it together. The art was digitally made in Photoshop.

I am so excited to announce that my picture book Over in the Meadow is now available at Barefoot Books. The Barefoot team partnered with Karrot Animation in London to animate my illustrations. I teared up the first time I saw it. The combination of art & Susan Reed's beautiful music was just so perfect! I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did. The book Over in the Meadow is sold with a c-d & we encourage it to be a parent, child sing along. Creating the art for these kind of books is always a long process with lots of challenging myself to dig deeper, push my style farther, to try & create pure joy on each spread. I hope you pick up Over in the Meadow & enjoy it with the little ones in your life.
