Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to my friends out there who come by once I a while to say hello. You mean a lot to me.
Angels are my favorite thing to draw. This was for a card design I decided not to submit to the contest. But they work so well for Easter. Why not angels at Easter? They mean HOPE and PEACE and new possibilities.
I hope they brighten your visit.

Walking Read

The Walking Read is a name for a fund raiser for Vancouver's Children's Hospital coming up in June. I am working with the decorator on visuals for the event. It is being organized by Shar Levine, chair of CWILL BC, (Children's Writer's and Illustrators of BC). Everyone is invited to buy a ticket and come dressed up as a favourite character from a children's story book or novel. More information can be found here.

I Won! Woo-Hoo!

I thought I'd post a link to the card design I entered into the UNICEF and YOU card contest run by Hallmark in January. It was the first place choice and today they have posted my winning design on their Hallmark online cards website. They have also posted a press release here .

The card will be available in Canada and the USA  in Hallmark Crown stores in July and sold in boxed sets. Part of the proceeds will go to UNICEF.

This little cut out is from the design. There is a copyright protection on the winning design but the full card is visible at the Hallmark card site noted above.

Cheer up

We have rain. So, to cheer myself up, I thought I'd post some of the characters who keep popping into my life this month.

It was a beautiful day in Vancouver today. Maggie and I went for a lovely walk.

Adding More Characters

I've been having fun with this design. Three little pigs wanted in on the fun and a fairy godmother flew into the scene.
