Miss Lilia, aka Nuggie, almost 6 months old
I can not believe my little Nugget is almost 6 months old. Its very strange to imagine life without her. Its been a struggle trying to balance work and taking care of her. Time is very limited so I can only take on so many projects, which is very different than what I'm use to. And being a freelancer, its hard to say no. But I know I need to enjoy the time I have with this little Nugget- she is already growing up so fast. Those smiles are finally coming and she has been very generous with them lately!

As if there were not enough changes in my life already- we are moving to Boston next month. My husband will be a visiting professor at Boston College for a year, so we will be back in the east coast! I'm happy about that since we'll be alot closer to family. But I will miss Ann Arbor. Another official post on that later.

So we are packing up right now and looking forward to our next adventure.

High Five Magazine- July issue

I have an illustration in the July issue of High Five magazine. This was one of my last illo jobs before Miss Lilia was born, so I remember this fondly. It gave me a burst of energy to work on this and I think a few weeks later I had her. Life has been different ever since. :-)

Battle at The Society of Illustrators retail shop!

I'm happy to say that my evil robot and super cat pins have a new place of battle- it is at the Society of Illustrators retail shop! I'm pretty excited about it since who knows when I'll get a chance to have my art in their gallery, but I'm glad evil robot and super cat will get to hang out there. They are on their way there now :-)

Fun Facts Puzzle- Under the Sea

I illustrated this puzzle for Silver Dolphin Books-it came out back in April but haven't gotten the chance to blog about it yet. It is a large floor puzzle with an under the sea theme with fun facts in the back of each piece.

Originally I had the colors like this, with a pink/peach ocean floor and yellow sky. I do prefer this version better, but it was changed to a more "realistic" color in the final version below.

You can get this puzzle on Amazon, Silver Dolphin, or your local store. Yay!
