2. August's word-of-the-month is Picnic!

If You Love Honey by Martha Sullivan, illustrated by Cathy Morrison
August's word-of-the-month is "Picnic" and I just happened to have an image that relates. This book comes out in a couple of weeks and while I wouldn't say it was a picnic to illustrate it, I can say I totally enjoyed researching and illustrating it. The publisher is Dawn Publications!

Here's an early and very nice review by Sue Poduska with 2nd Grade Reading Blog.

Please check out my Studio With A View Blog for more information about this book and others.

Thanks for taking a look!

4. Butterflies…. oh my!

So MANY butterflies are in my recently released 32 page picture book, Butterfly Counting, it was hard to select some pages to share.  So I tossed them all in the air and these fluttered down onto my desktop.






I couldn't resist sharing a butterfly coloring page, too.  Lots more coloring pages of lots of different animals can be found on my website:  www.achoowhypollencounts.com

10. Birthday for A Little Princess

Some years ago I was asked to step in to illustrate " A Little Princess"  for Penguin Books because the original artist commissioned became ill.  I had just finished " SHARKSI" for them so this was a pleasant departure.



" And what a party it was."

12. Over on the Farm

Written by Marianne Berkes, illustrated by Cathy Morrison, published by Dawn Publishing
Ok, it's not a birthday image, (our inspirational word for June is Birthday) but it's the cover for a book I have coming out Spring 2016. Artwork for this book is complete and I'm working away on a second book that will be released the same date. I'll post more about this book and others on my Studio With A View Blog soon.

Thanks for taking a look!

16. Home is where the heart is...

Houses don't come in one shape or size. The mole lives underground, the seal lives in the ocean and the  deer and fox live in the meadow. 

These are illustrations from Pitter and Patter written by Martha Sullivan, published by Dawn Publishing and illustrated by me, Cathy Morrison. It's one of their new spring releases. 

Welcome Home and Happy Spring!

17. House of the Bishop

House of the Bishop by Ellen Beier, from Les Miserables
     In this image, Jean Valjean returns to the house of the Bishop: from the (abridged) text: “What a wretch I am!” he exclaimed, and he burst into tears for the first time in 19 years. Valjean realized that he had to change. When the church clock chimed three on that morning, he was kneeling in prayer at the bishop’s door.

19. WINGS for April!

If You Love Honey by Martha Sullivan, illustrated by Cathy Morrison
April's theme word is WINGS, so here's some blue jays to welcome spring. This is a spread from If You Love Honey, by Martha Sullivan, published by Dawn Publications and illustrated by me, Cathy Morrison. It's the second book I've illustrated for Martha and I'm a huge fan of her writing. It seems like kids like her as well.

This is set to come out September 2015. Thanks for taking a look!

I was inspired to do an illustration of this moth after one started visiting my jasmine in the evenings. I thought it was a hummingbird, its so HUGE! It starts out as one of those scary horned caterpillar worms. I never knew they turned into such glorious creatures. Nature is amazing!

24. POLLEN TSUNAMI!

May's word of the month is Windy!  Today the wind is blowing pollen across the country, creating a POLLEN TSUNAMI!  ACHOO!  So I am posting a few illustrations from my just released book, Achoo! Why Pollen Counts.  Each page has wind billowing pollen, so it was tough to select just a few!  Baby Bear has come out of hibernation and has a big problem - he's allergic to pollen!  Check out the book and find out how he comes to appreciate that dusty stuff that makes us sneeze!
