Pretty excited to find out this week that The Yoga Game by the Sea has been shortlisted for the 2015 - 2016 Chocolate Lily award. Congratulations to my fellow friend and author Kathy Beliveau and Simply Read Books (who also has 2 more books nominated). Can't wait to find out who wins!
I have been meaning to post this back when I found out in January, but you know life takes over! Pretty proud moment when my librarian friend said she saw the cover of our (kathy and i) book The Yoga Game by The Sea in the School Library Journal! Apparently, it's quite an honor to get in the catalog, let alone have an image of your book!
This is all my sketches for The Yoga Game in the Garden that I sent in last week! I loved loved loved coming up with the illustrations for this book and I can't wait to show you more!
for as long as i can remember, i have always dreamed of being a children's book illustrator.
right after i had hazel and i was having one of those new motherhood (oi) days when i received an email from Simply Read Books inquiring if i would be interested in doing a book project with them. my life was forever changed that day.
i jumped at the chance to do this project not knowing what i was in for. it has been an amazing two years - from reading stephany's beautiful manuscript, working on my first sketches to mailing off my final images.
i have worked with so many amazing and talented people during the production of this book and i can't believe i finally get to hold this in my hands today.
thank you to Kallie + Dimeter for letting me take on this book. Stephany for writing words that i cherish so much. Susan for showing me the ropes and for the harshest critiques of my work i have ever read - this book would not be where it is today. Sara for being an amazing children's book designer. my mom and husband for watching hazel and for cheering me on. and for all the wonderful friends i have met along the way - thank you!
