Theatrical!

PeterPan_Final

Carousel Players, a theatre company for young people, commissioned me to create art for their 2018/2019 season. In addition to a new adaptation of Peter Pan by Fiona Sauder and Reanne Spitzer, Carousel is staging, Whole World by Sean Dixon, and The Incredible Adventures of Mary Jane Mosquito by Tomson Highway. Fifth House/Fitzhenry & Whiteside invited me to illustrate the picture book version of Tomson Highway’s wonderful play, and it is a pleasure to see it staged by Carousel Players!

Book Cover

CageWithoutBars_cover

Second Story Press commissioned me to illustrate the cover of A Cage Without Bars, a middle grade historical novel by Toronto author, Anne Dublin. It tells the tragic story of enslaved Spanish Jewish children on the island of Sao Tome in 1492. An inspiring read for all ages!

Happy Hallowe’en

DayOfDead_type

From the archives, something spooky for Hallowe’en, a wrap-around cover for Cricket Magazine. For the theme of Day of the Dead I created a hand-carved linocut print with digital color. BOO!

Interview with author, Aimee Reid

Aimee Reid, author of the enchanting picture book, Mama’s Day with Little Gray, interviewed me for her blog about children’s books. Check it out and read her other fascinating interviews with children’s authors and illustrators.

The After Party

A good time was had by all on Fathers Day at Indigo Yonge and Eglinton, Toronto. Lots of budding artists of all ages stopped by to try their hand at printmaking and stamping characters from An African Alphabet by Eric Walters, published by Orca Books. Thanks to Christie Williamson, Customer Experience Manager, IndigoKids, for inviting me back and for making the event a huge success!
