My new books!





I received my first copies of Dancing Dreams and Oliver's First Christmas from Accord Publishing. I turned in the final illustrations for Dancing Dreams days before I had my baby in January, and the finals for Oliver's First Christmas were due in April. Both of these will be released within the next month.

They both use AniMotion(tm) technology, which is a fancy way of saying that there are action windows which look like animations as you turn the page. You can see the woman in the red dress is in two different poses above. Super fun!

Congratulations, Kristi! I can't wait to see them at the party!

Thanks, Chuck! Sadly, we won't be able to make the party. :( We've done a whole lotta traveling already this year and it's quite a haul for us to get out to Highlights in eastern PA. We're planning on coming next year though. And then our two little gals can play together!

Yay! They're both all kinds of awesome, but I have a teensy soft spot for Oliver. :) Amazing work, Kristi!

Both books look adorable. Those AniMotion books are so fascinating.
