The First Christmas

I’m very excited to share details of my upcoming picture book – The First Christmas, published by Penguin Random House/Puffin Books. SO excited to see a FOILED COVER! It was so great to work with the wonderful team and illustrate this well known story,

The First Christmas perfectly captures the wonder of the nativity and celebrates the Christmas spirit of giving and togetherness. Full of hope for the future and the joy of family, this is a classic picture book to share, year after year.”

Makin’ Patterns

I’ve been meaning on learning how to make repetitive patterns in Illustrator for a long time, but finally gave it a crack today (inspired by the 52 Project). Now it isn’t perfect, but this mythological creatures pattern was fun to make (spot the Yeti) and I’m inspired to make more of them!Β mythology
