The Writers' Union of Canada Holiday Card

Honoured for the chance to illustrate The Writers' Union of Canada Holiday Card. Not only is the Union an invaluable resource and advocate for Canadian authors, they offer funding for hosts wishing to bring authors to their readers. Thank you, Writers' Union, for all you do. Happy Holidays, everyone!

20 second trailer for SCRIBBLE (Scholastic Canada, April 2016)

Had fun making this for April 2016's SCRIBBLE (Scholastic Canada).

Circle, Square and Triangle are doing just fine--but when Scribble 'draws' them together, their imaginations soar. 

Original music by my awesome husband on GarageBand. The four solid beats represent Square.The three for Triangle. The cycle is Circle and everything else is Scribble. Hope you like it!
