picture book panel, october 17th

You can check out some photos from the opening night of the Alberta Illustration Awards, which I was fortunate to participate in, on RANDM Collective's website, here.

I also wanted to mention that I'm participating in a picture book panel, along with several amazing illustrators, at ACAD in conjunction with that show on Thursday, October 17th from 3:00 to 5:00 in the lecture theatre. It's open to the public so check it out if you have an interest in picture books.

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.
