1. A House for a Mouse

For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.  ~Martin Luther

Mindy and Moe decided to go on a picnic 
on a beautiful August day.

Playing with the new style. :o)
It's been a while since I twoodled! 
Usually the posting days are Wednesdays 
but I decided I would work on it today since I had a chance. 

So here is my #Twoodle for this week using the words:
Racoon & Windy

If you want to participate, here's how.

13. A Break For Owls

I managed to wrap up a huge chunk of Maddy Kettle over the last few weeks by really pushing ahead with it. There is just 10 pages left to ink, so I'm almost there.

But, for the next few days I'm switching gears to work on a small contract for a wonderful new publisher in Australia called Tiny Owl Workshop, contributing some drawings to their first book (like the one above!) and I'll be completing some private commissions and doing some writing.

If you go Inkybook 1 you'll sort of know the story I'm writing as I had bits of it in Inkybook, I called it The Witch Detective there but am now calling it The witches of Bogg Lane and am doing it as a prose story. More on that later.

Every time it rains, it rains…… pennies from heaven.

You’ll find your fortune falling all over town.Make sure that your umbrella is upside down!


Hmmmm…..She doesn’t look like she’s singing the same song as I am! Oh well, it’s still my favorite song!

25. Tomie dePaola Illustrator Award ~The one that ALMOST was and the one that WAS





When the Tomie dePaola Award contest was first announced. I was very excited and filled with ideas. The prompt choices were Tom Sawyer, Little Women and The Yearling.

My first go at it was this one for The Yearling. While I liked working on this, Tomie’s words kept ringing in my ear, “I want to see an image, a style, a vision that I’ve never seen before – all in glorious black and white!”

Hmmm… I will add this to my portfolio but  I had another idea.   So I ended up submitting the one below.  This is my take. I love little furry creatures.

To see the other entries and there are so many fantastic entries, follow the link below!



Diandra Mae, a fellow Houston illustrator has been diligently adding entries to the Unofficial Gallery of the Tomie dePaola Award blog. Thank you Diandra for taking the time out of this busy holiday season!
