I am working on some illustrations for a small story book for friend.  I finished the last of the thumbnails today, so I am ready to start working on the finished illustrations.

All done in ArtRage.

2. LAST RESORT

I wrote a picture book over a year ago. I love it. But it has never felt “right” to me. I’ve revised countless times. My kids are tired of hearing me read it outloud. And my critique partners are ready to put it to bed. But still… it felt like something was wrong. I didn’t…

6. Author Jodi Moore on Accepting Award for When a Dragon Moves In

When a Dragon Moves In, written by Jodi Moore, illustrated by Howard McWilliam

Jodi Moore accepted the Library of Virginia’s Annual Whitney and Scott Cardozo Award for Children’s Literature for When a Dragon Moves In last weekend!  Here is her account of the event:

WOW! The evening – the weekend – was extraordinary… just amazing! I am still pinching myself…what a star-studded, lovely weekend I had!

Virginia is a beautiful state, filled with warm, wonderful people.

The day started out with a scrumptious luncheon at the Convention Center, where all nominees were honored with medals.

We were treated to a Q&A session with the incomparable Tom Robbins, who was honored with a Literary Lifetime Achievement Award. What a fascinating man!

Following the luncheon, people were encouraged to buy the honored authors’ books and we were positioned at tables for signing. I’m thrilled to report that lots of people “adopted” Dragons! I was also interviewed on Sirius radio!

7. Peek behind the scenes of my new website



Hi all,
I've been working away on my plans for the new website that I am building and I wanted to share a bit of it with you. Above you can see a sketch for my new town which will be featured on the website. I hope it will be a place mostly for kids with fun things to download and how to draw movies. I'll also be able to share more about me and my books.

I'll post some more sketches for the site below in hopes you'll get a little excited about it.

19. Dragon Cake?

A huge “Thank You” to Bill and Lorie Jackson who took book promotion to the next level. The cake was kept by the Spartanburg United Way and the chapter for Imagination Library to help promote the charities for children.

Even the sand looks delicious.

Here is the link to the addictive site where Bill posted this pic: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2036816

20. How to Celebrate Reading Day in CT

One of our favorite things -- brownies (not annoyed dads). Illustration from When a Dragon Moves In

What is the term for putting new words to old songs?

We visited this blog post (linked below) because When a Dragon Moves In is mentioned favorably in one of the comments, and we thought you’d all enjoy this video short we found there: teachers singing about their favorite things… books.

21. When a Dragon Moves In to BookFest PA, a first-hand report by author Jodi Moore

Jodi Moore signing copies of When a Dragon Moves In at BookFest PA

I’m one of these people who just can’t wait to bite into the chocolaty center of a Tootsie Pop, the creamy middle of a sugary doughnut, the gooey core of a caramel bar. So imagine my reaction when I was offered the chance to participate in BookFest PA, a book festival tucked into the heart of The Central PA Festival of the Arts. Sweet!

And what do you get when you combine arts enthusiasts with avid readers? Some quite extraordinary people who, while varying in age, background, and interest, have come together to celebrate the power of the imagination.

Nothing short of a little slice of heaven.

Between 10 am and 5 pm on July 16, thousands of folks browsed the BookFest PA tent to share words and stories, and to meet some very talented writers and illustrators. (Yes, I was admittedly fan-gushy to be in such lovely company.) I’m thrilled to say that Dragon “moved into” many a new, loving home that day! There is nothing more heart-squishy than watching a child hug your book.

In addition, I was honored to present When a Dragon Moves In during a late morning story time inside Schlow Library. Our young audience became artists themselves, drawing pictures of their own “perfect sandcastles” – which I‘m sure are now proudly displayed on refrigerators across the nation! Each child received the highly regarded “Dragon” sticker for his/her work, as well as a bookmark. And of course, the Dragon himself made an appearance!

A standing ovation – and a ton of thanks – to the organizers and volunteers of this amazing event. This was only the second year for BookFest PA, but with the success and smiles it brought to so many, I know I’m not the only one looking forward to many more!

23. Sandcastles and Dragons

This past Saturday, August 6, was a cloudy/overcast day in Amagansett, NY. Nevertheless, the East Hampton Sandcastle Contest had 88 groups enter the sand sculpting competition and spectators swarmed the area as if it were a sun-shiny day.

Copies of When a Dragon Moves In (Written by Jodi Moore, Illustrated by Howard McWilliam) were among prizes for select winners.  I guess it really is true…”if you build a perfect sandcastle, a dragon will move in.”

Thank you to Rossetti Perchik and the Clamshell Foundation for all of their cross-promotional efforts.

25. Dragons in the street!

Dragons might live in your street!

These are some friendly dragons from a picture book I illustrated way back in 1994. Where has the time gone!

Not a great scan as I had to scan from the printed book.
