Hope you're doing okay, processing your feelings & taking it day by day.
Here's a peek at those ornaments.

with a little cut out creativity.
Trying to create some merry moments against the backdrop of such a heavy year.
With every 2020 holiday/ celebration thus far an understandable shell of what
we traditionally recognized. On the up side, it's been an opportunity to rethink & reinvent
traditions. (And space to understand what's truly important to each of us.)

I like the warm palette & the eclectic mix of characters. This would be fun as kids bedding.
You make what you feel as an artist then hope you find it a home. It's a strange way to work.
Sometimes I find it invigorating other times endlessly annoying. The key is to make art you really like- eventually it turns into something. A career in art is the long game! (with lots of self discovery)

that was found in this years Rockefeller Plaza Christmas tree– hundreds of miles from its home.
He was nursed back to health at a wildlife facility as the long trip left him tired, dehydrated & hungry.
Affectionately nicknamed Rockefeller and feeling much better, he was released back into the wild Saturday. A promising start to a strange holiday season indeed!

Planing on taking the weekend to try & recharge. I've been doing these crazy Peloton Bootcamp classes daily for weeks now, (feeling strong makes me happy) working on a couple new books & feeling like I need to make tons of new art. Think I need to sit still for a while & chill. Which is hard for me but, necessary.
Have a good weekend & let's lean into the recharge. The holidays are around the corner– yikes! Although they'll be distant & different this year I imagine the gist will still be the same.

Vroom, vroom! I designed & sold this print almost 4 years ago. Being a freelance designer you're never really sure when, where, or if your design will hit the retail market. I was pleased to see my transportation art now available at The Company Store. As you can tell the background is now bright blue. It's funny you need to take pride in what you make but, at the same time not get overly attached as things often change.

Something new & a little different has slithered into the Hello, World book series… REPTILES
I’ll admit I’m squeamish when it come to snakes but, when you learn about something
it often takes away some of the fear.
Crawl, slither, hiss, bite (yikes) there’s a lot of reptiles to explore!
*Ophidiophobia is the fear of snakes.

Let’s start with Planet Earth- the place we call home.
This book is packed with fun educational visuals.
Maps, a variety of different habitats & a classroom of kiddos
doing their part to contribute to a healthy world.
It’s my hope that by sharing the beauty of our planet with
little ones we might instill a curiosity & desire to protect &
preserve our amazing Planet Earth. It’s one of a kind!

Nonetheless or should I say nevermore here we are. If you're not familair with the podcast LORE now is the perfect time to listen. It's slightly unsettling historic folktales that makes you feel a little like you're sitting around the campfire. (Only improvement would be some s'mores!)
*Most the stories are kid friendly for ages 10 & up.

Yellow makes me happy... how about you? I've found myself gravitating to it the last month. Maybe it's the September golden light that has inspired me or maybe it's just that little lift it seems like we could all use right now. A little fun fact *I like yellow so much my kitchen cabinets are bright yellow.
(I don't regret it!)

In 41 days (or sooner by mail) it will be time to vote!
I hope you have a plan in place to participate in our democracy. (it's trickier this time)
If you're not registered or curious about checking your status you can visit
If you feel like you'd like a blueprint on how you'll vote this November you can visit
planyourvote.org Both sites are tools available to you.
Since my son was a toddler I'd take him to the polling center with me so he could see me vote.
At the end we'd both grab a sticker & we'd talk about how it's important to vote for what you believe in.
That everyone has a voice & that the beautiful thing about our country is that we can have a say in how things go.
This year I'll have him sit at the kitchen table with me when my ballot arrives and I'll once again talk to him about why voting is an important tradition to preserve.
Kids model our behavior, please vote & let them know why you do it & what it means to you.

How Do Apples Grow? is part of my Hello, World! early learning book series. It came out a couple years ago & remains one of my favorites to revisit this time of the year. We always enjoyed autumn trips to the orchard but, to be honest I wasn't really sure how apples grow?

In my first house there were morels that would grow in the front yard.
