And then suddenly one day there's a book with my name on it...

It's been so long since I last posted. It's so easy to just keep slugging away in the lil' studio, painting to my heart's content and ignoring my social media duties. Though I would like to hiss and claw at the pressures of keeping up with it all, the major silver lining has been me meeting wonderful, diligent creatives and lovers of great art. And so, tantruming aside, I will attempt to make more regular blog posts. :)

Tonight I have something wonderful to announce, a dream that has long been in the making has finally become a reality ... I'm now a published illustrator !

I was hired to illustrate this fantastic counting book Fun Fun One Crab One The Run written by Mario Picayo and published by Little Bell Caribbean. This board book is aimed towards the 3 - 6 yr age group.

To be able to work on a book that I believe will have a positive educational impact on our early learners is just the cherry on top !

I'm now in the process of planning a launch and illustration show for November (egads) so if you would like updates about the Fun Crab Launch please feel free to join my mailing list, located on the right hand side of my blog!

For the first time newbies who are joining the mailing list, as soon as you put in your info you will see a message saying that you have been sent an email. When you receive the email (it sometimes goes to your junk folder) you must confirm that you are subscribing to the Fun Crab list by pressing the link that they send you in this email.

If this option made your head hurt, feel free to join my FB Art page instead, which will also have updates on the launch ! :)
