Another project I worked on a few months ago was an editorial piece for APU Life Magazine, from Azusa Pacific University here in California. I am privileged to have become friends with the graphic designer of this magazine and she found a special article for me to illustrate. I don't know if I have ever made an editorial piece for a paid gig, but it was great to do something other than Children's Book art for awhile. Fun stuff!
A few months ago I worked on a project that was different than what I usually do. And I did it in a medium that I don't usually work in. It was a nice change of pace and a nice challenge to tackle.
Using Adobe Illustrator I created some small vector illustrations to be used in a School Nutrition Menu Brochure. These ended up being very small images since most of the space was needed to inform parents of meal choices, but I still had fun! I used their school mascot (bulldogs) and created some characters out of them. The first image will be used on a very large banner in front of the school to promote the Nutrition Program and are known as "The Power Pups". And then the school plans to have a different theme for these characters each year. This year was "On The Farm". Below are a few pieces made for the brochure.

I can officially let you all know that I am working on a Board Book (my first board book!) called PIGS CAN'T FLY. The book will be out in time for Christmas and will be accompanied by an Augmented Reality App.
Keep your eye on Social Media for sketches and updates on this project.
I am pleased to announce that KALI'S REGRESS is now available for FREE on Smashwords.com. Get it now, while you can! This is the second book in the trilogy, the first book being THE MAHOGANY DOOR. I hope you all enjoy, I had a lot of fun making the cover artwork!
