Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa, Blessed Solstice, and a Festive Festivus from our family to yours!

What are your guiding words or goals for 2017?

Instead of New Years resolutions, I've been choosing 3 words to guide my year for the last few years. These are my 2017 choices: Competent (because my word "Expand" from 2016 pushed me into new ways of being that I want to master in the new year). Thrive (because when I thrive, others around me thrive) and Fun (because if I don't actively ward off boredom, I make life interesting... sometimes in not very healthy ways). Would love to hear your words!

I'm trying my hand at hand bookbinding today. Making an art journal with all different kinds of art paper. Cutting the leather is the hardest part. Don't want to mess this up!

My final assignment from @lillarogers #makeartthatsells Children's Book Illustration class! I highly recommend it if you're interested in book illustration and character development.

More from my #makeartthatsells #childrensbookillustration class: a double page spread from The Owl and The Pussycat.

I took a break yesterday from my book character illustrations to start working on some fun ideas that have been floating in my head. This is a WIP based on my vintage Woodstock typewriter. It's only a start, but I'm quite happy with it!

Another piece developed for the MATS Children's Book Illustration class. Character poses from The Owl and The Pussycat. I'm enjoying the heck out of this course!

The suffragettes have something to say about #repealthe19th.

More from my children's book illustration class- a kitty cat to go with my owl! :)

For the next month I'm taking @lillarogers' children's book illustration class. I'm trying something totally new and LOVING IT! Here's my first character, Mr. Owl. 😍

This is one of my favorite drawings from my book Coloring Bird Mandalas, colored by the very talented @ginnygoblue. 😍😍😍

My absolute favorite thing about publishing coloring books is seeing what you do with them!Repost colored by @divasecunda from my latest adult coloring book Coloring Bird Mandalas. Isn't it beautiful?! ・・・
