Cool news! I illustrated two new books that will both be coming out this Fall. One is a picture book called Bears Winter Party, written by Deborah Hodge and published by Groundwood Books. The other one is a middle grade novel called Clara Humble, written by Anna Humphrey and published by Owl Kids Books. I wasn’t going to post about this until later on in the Summer but then two different people sent me pictures of the books on display at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair! I’ve been wanting to visit that fair for a long time and seeing the pictures of my books there and the cool display that Owl Kids made with my illustrations made me super happy. Even though I myself haven’t made the trip to Italy for this event, my books have. Feels great! Big thanks to everyone at Groundwood and Owl Kids for making that happen!

Cultivating Imagination. A show of SCBWI members at the Lynn Valley LIbrary

I was very happy to have been part of the show Cultivating Imagination at the Lynn Valley Library. The show was on display from Feb-April 2016 and was curated and organized by SCBWI member Anita Miettunen in collaboration with the Vancouver Arts Council.

I contributed two large scale black and white ink drawings which you can see below in the pics. Thanks so much to Anita for organizing and everyone involved!  The show looked lovely in the space and had great feedback at the library. Here are a few photos taken by Akemi and courtesy of the Vancouver Arts Council from the reception.
