painting process

Here's how one of the illustrations from Bye, Bye, Butterflies! looked at different levels of completion:

(Sorry about the yellow tone on some of the photos.  I wasn't using the best camera and didn't always have the best light).

uppercase magazine, issue #14

The latest issue of Uppercase Magazine contains a large section about children's books and I was lucky enough to have been mentioned.  I was so excited to be interviewed for a magazine that I really respect and enjoy - I've had a subscription ever since returning to Canada from Europe.

When my copy of the magazine arrived in the mail a few days ago I was thrilled to see how beautiful the article about me and my book (Bye, Bye, Butterflies!) looked and then even more excited to see that included in the issue were three of my favorite picture book illustrators: Isabelle Arsenault, Jon Klassen and Oliver Jeffers.

Thanks so much to Janine Vangool for including me and to Kait Kucy for writing such a nice article.
