Melissa's Magic Ride

A new book has arrived on my doorstep, Melissa's Magic Ride. The author had it published in hardcover and paperback simultaneously. Here is a note from the author's site:

And so here is Melissa, a bright eight year old with yearnings to know a father she cannot remember. Come along with her on her exciting outward adventure and soulful inner journey to the heart of her relationship with her father.

Book projects

Three book projects are in various stages of completion right now, but a new quilt lady appears again in April. On the drawing board are jungles, dinosaurs, mules and flying stuffed animals. Never a dull moment around here.  - lec

And again....

Another quilt lady, and news that Melissa's Journey is at last in print.

In print, and in newsprint...again

A little freelance work from an upcoming book has found its way into the newspaper pages again. The Kansas City Star was the newspaper that inspired me toward a career as an illustrator, so it's kind of ironic to see works that were made for a book landing in the newspaper before the book is even published.

The book is called "Across the Wide Missouri," and should go to press sometime this summer. Each month, the Star will publish a pattern inspired by the person featured that month. February's story and accompanying pattern will print in the Star on February 16.

In the meantime, I'm working with some initial ideas on a couple of children's books. It will be a very interesting springtime and summer around here.

Christmas in the air

My artist's representative, Wendy Mays at Wendylynn & Co. asked for a Christmas promotion featuring carolers from each of her artists. This scene came to mind.
