Happy Halloween 2016!


High Five “Too Many Tomatoes” Illustrations

Here’s a really story I illustrated for HighLights HighFive’s August 2016 issue. It’s a fun story, written by Ellen Javernick. It’s true…Garden’s tend to yield too many tomatoes all at once! Too many for one person to eat themselves! (I could say the same for zucchini!). Also, what a super-cute cover, by Jess Pauwels! This issue is packed full of good stories, pictures, and activities, as usual! Thanks again, HighFive!

High Five Mini-Book: “Busy Bunnies”

The recent High Five magazine has some of my illustrations. I was so excited to illustrate the mini-book (by Heidi Bee Roemer) for this issue, which featured cute bunnies in various activities! Thanks again, Highlights High Five!
