Boston's Snowiest Season

Always listen to the Groundhog...
This past weekend it snowed just enough for Boston to beat its previously snowiest winter (107.6" in 1995-1996). Did someone make up the word "snowiest"? Awkward.

I'm working on a new chapter book for Petimals Books called Elephitten (combo of an elephant and a kitten) and I decided to try something new. I created this animated GIF of the title character after reading a tutorial on digitaltrends.com (scroll 1/2 way down) and taking apart someone else's GIF to see how it all works.

How's this for my first try?

By the way, this is also the first look at Elephitten (only the author and my kids have seen him/her). Cute, right? The chapter book will be coming out sometime in May or June.

Winter Bunny

This illustration started out as a sketch in my sketchbook and ended up as a fun color and texture exercise.
