Dick Bruna tribute

Another illustration hero gone. Dick Bruna passed away yesterday at 89. What a long, successful career he had. His simple, striking, emotive illustrations have influenced me so much. You will be missed Mr. Bruna, but your illustrated legacy lives on in your characters, books, book covers, merchandise, and more. Thanks for all you gave literature.

Self-promotion Valentine cards

So excited about these self-promo cards I’ve created, particularly for the SCBWI conference this weekend. The back has a To: and From: and my contact information. Inspired by the style of vintage Valentines and the ones I used to get in grade school.
