Mouse on Literacy



I was asked to have "Knitting with Mouse" used in Literacyhead's "Art of Teaching Words" feature-- to teach high frequency words (in Mouse's case, it's "Find"!).  As a teacher and an artist, I'm so happy to have work that serves an educational purpose...

Literacyhead.com--an online collection of original lessons, tools and resources geared toward literacy educators--artists and educators combine forces to make learning a fun and educational experience for children--both in visual/textual literacy and the arts!

This image made it into Creative Quarterly 28 as a runner up!
So thankful to the judges for choosing my bloody meat...
Also,
I made some business cards that came in (a 1st for me) and did this zebra book image for Society of Killustrators! I also fiddled around with an image, thinking of a CD cover idea for Forest Sun. Thanks Pandora for always being in the background while I doodle:)

Experimenting with more graphic elements. This one's called "Trimmin' the fat". Big corporation's decisions to make up for profit loss by cutting out thousands of workers. A bloody mess!
