“Eh, what’s up, bug?” #kidlitillustration

I’d drawn this over a week ago (the further adventures of Mac…) but put off posting since I felt I had a poem in me that goes with it. I never did get around to writing the poem down and finally told myself, “nobody cares about your stupid poem but you aren’t posting drawings daily like you said you would.”

I yell at myself as much as I yell at the kids.

Con-CAT-enation #kidlitillustration

Or is it FROG-CAT-enation…the linking together of amphibians and felines?

I’ve not been good about keeping up with daily sketches recently as you may have noticed. Will need to remedy that soon.

Whatcha reading, cat? #kidlitillustration

Reading would certainly account for a well-developed cerebral cortex, especially the frontal lobe, and hence the enlarged cranium. Mac’s no dummy!

Mac the Cat #kidlitillustration

“The Misadventures of Macrocephaly Cat”…I’ll call her “Mac.” Heh.

I drew this a couple of nights ago while we were watching the last Jason Bourne movie and it took this long to post. Someone should nickname me “Speedy.”

Are you my mother? #kidlitillustration

I’m channeling my favorite P.D. Eastman book, “Are You My Mother?” here. Now, before my awesome critique group buddies reprimand me for not working hard on my young adult novel that won at the #NESCBWI17 Pitchapalooza, I want to clarify that I did this drawing before I left for the conference so I’m not spending time drawing…just spending time POSTING drawings. I love my critique group buddies!

To create, perchance to dream #knitting

No idle hands around here. Ever. I’m trying out a new dishcloth pattern which makes use of a controlled dropped stitch. What a clever idea!
