Simply Messing About...with Watercolor!

Since I'm not yet able to post images from the current book I'm working on (A Morning with Gong Gong, Lee & Low), here are a couple little paintings I've been doing for fun. I've had this Windsor & Newton travel watercolor set for a couple years, but I've hardly used it. I decided to pull it out and simply mess about! Though watercolor isn't as forgiving as my computer, it's been fun to make marks on paper and delight in happy accidents. I'm hoping these little exercises in watercolor will spill over and help me with some spontaneity in the digital world of painting. Here's to having fun with real paint!

What I'm Working On...

The last half of 2014 had me super busy with a bunch of projects, most of which cannot be spoken about yet. However, I do have some exciting news that I can share!

I'm currently in the beginning stages of illustrating an adorable book called "A Morning with Gong Gong" by the 2013 New Voices Award winner Sylvia Liu. The story is about a spunky little girl and her grandfather who spend some time together and end up teaching each other about yoga and tai chi.

I'm having a great time working with an amazing team at Lee & Low Books--a publisher I admire and have hoped to work with for a long time!

And since I can't show any work from my current projects, I'll leave you with this little bunny. ;)
