fall update

Although I still don't have much time for this blog right now, I wanted to pop in for a quick update. I'm still plugging away on my next picture book as well as a few other illustration projects that I'll be sharing in the near future. I'm still working at the spice store and soon I'll be teaching at ACAD again as my extended studies illustration class is starting this week. Last weekend was spent manning a booth at Edmonton's Comic and Entertainment Expo, selling prints and books. I'm also finally harvesting from my garden - lots of tomatoes and squash and cucumbers. I even managed to slip away to Saskatchewan for a week to visit my home town of Zenon Park and my family. It was wonderful. I might have gone a little crazy with photos and filters... see below :)

Really cool public art in Calgary's East Village:

My beloved Saskatchewan:

When I was a child, I was obsessed with the imprint of scissors in a sidewalk in our park so when I was home this last time, I found it to show my husband. I don't know why I like it so much, but I still do.

I'm a friend of Andy's, author of the Charlie books. I love this Fall update of yours. The photos are lovely. Good luck with Charlie's Dirt Day. I can't wait to see what you do with it. Your work is terrific!

My best,

Monica Kulling

Thank you, Monica :)
I'm pretty happy with the way the new book is coming together.
