Cupcake Cowgirl!!

Howdy! This spunky gal has a lot of sass... sassafras that is! She's the Cupcake Cowgirl and she loves to bake cupcakes for the cowhands that work on the ranch! I drew this character and knew there was a story to go with her. Who knows... you may see her tale cause quite a ruckus on the shelves of a bookstore near you!

It's a Party!!!

This illustration was created for an invitation for a new bookshop opening around my neck of the woods. They will host birthday parties in the shop. The theme is Cardboard Castle! Sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun!

Yoon and the Moon

I'm going to an agent conference this coming weekend. I'm going to read them my story about Yoon and the moon. Here is an illustration from the book. The mood is quiet, thoughtful, and imaginative. Wouldn't it be awesome if one of the agents decide to pick me up? Well, whatever happens it will be a good learning experience and I might be able to make some good contacts.

Happy Birthday Jodi! (IF-Perspective [view of life])

This past weekend was my very good friend Jodi's birthday. She has been wanting me to illustrate her and her daughter since I first posted one of my other friend Jessica and her daughter. So here it is!
She is a foodie so there had to be a reference somewhere, thus the picnic basket. Her daughter's favorite color is rainbow, so the tights and the butterfly had to have some flair. Jodi is lighthearted and enjoys life, shown by her chuckle at Grace. She savors the fleeting moments with her children since they grow up so fast, displayed by the fact that she has paused for a time while her daughter shows her the butterfly.
Well, I trust you had a wonderful weekend Jodi. I love that God saw fit to put us together as friends and sister's in Christ. I love you.
