So Many Babies!

8 Dec

Well, this is my first post in quite some time – I’ve just finished up my busiest year yet, and the fall was a jumble of overlapping deadlines (I still can’t believe I hit them all!) I feel very, very fortunate to have worked on so many super fun projects with lovely clients in 2015. So, that’s the delay in posting about this little cutie, which arrived in September.

It’s SO MANY BABIES!!! Loveable, cuddly animal babies and their parents, set to a catchy rhyme by well-known Canadian poet Lorna Crozier. I had worked with BC publisher Orca Books before, and it’s always a great experience. It’s pretty much a dream job to create and look at pictures of cute baby animals all day! (If you’ve never seen a pic of a baby wombat, just google it – you won’t be disappointed. Goofy-looking little things so full of character!)

You can buy a copy of the book at Chapters/Indigo or on Amazon. And see my full portfolio on my website.

Here are some of my fave illustrations from the book:

New Baby Animal Illustrations for Chirp Magazine

22 Jul

ispot_Chirp_chicken_thumbEarlier this spring, I was asked by Chirp Magazine to create some cute illustrations for a spread in their “Baby Animals” issue. This was fun! There are two puzzles – one asks kids to put the life stages of frogs, butterflies and dogs in order, and one has them count the eggs in the nests of various birds. I think they turned out great!

Chirp’s colourful issues contain tons of innovative stories, puzzles and activities for 3- to 6-year-olds. As I grew up with Owl Magazine (Chirp’s older sister), it was very cool to see my illustrations in this magazine!
