I have the pleasure of illustrating monthly spreads for German Magazine Vital. Here are some from 2015. I took some out of the spreads so you could take a closer look. This is not my usual style with delicate quill lines and high detail. I call this my “silhouette” style. Here’s the section on my site.
As 2015 draws to a close I am looking back over projects and noticing that I didn’t share certain ones that came to fruition. So here’s this one, it’s a special booklet I illustrated for Spur Magazine in Japan. Below are some works in progress before I scanned and prepared the files for print.
I was excited to leave with a goodie bag. Of course I could not resist painting on the bag.

Over the weekend photographer, Nick Steever came over to take my author photo and some family photos. A Mother is a Story is coming out this April so I needed some good shots around for potential press. Of course Vivian was in a fussy mood, and Henry doesn’t like to sit still, and Dave and I feel awkward in front of the camera. Despite all that, Nick is totally warm and funny and made us all feel at ease. He kept everything totally natural and relaxed. It’s magical how all of his photos are imbued with light. I love his work and was honored to have him take these shots for us.
Happy to share the latest of my Vital Magazine (monthly column). In case you can’t read in German, the feature is about getting enough sleep and eating right for a healthy lifestyle. It’s Friday! All in favor of sleeping well this weekend say aye! Oh that’s right I have two kids. Maybe in a few years ; )
