Growth Chart from Brooklyn Public Library

Do you live in Brooklyn? Do you have a child in your life who is somewhere between 12 inches and four feet tall? Then participate in Summer Reading 2011 at your favorite Brooklyn Public Library branch and get a “Growth Chart” featuring my illustrations for Read It, Don’t Eat It!

It’s full-color, 6.25 inches square, and unfolds to a length of 37.5 inches. You can chart your child’s height, but also the breadth of their reading.

And it comes in Spanish, too!

Irritable Fox and Annoyed Pig

An experiment for the sake of experimenting - in this case in ink and watercolor. (I wanted to see what could be done using a limited palette - specifically one recommended by Beatrix Potter - but I’ve since mislaid the list of colors.)
