I am so totally behind on all the pieces of news I need to share with you all! So, here’s a quick rundown of my projects to date (and I’ll share more on each item in follow-up posts):
MISS MAPLE’S SEEDS
story and illustrations, Nancy Paulsen Books/Penguin
This is my first very own picture book! Coming out April 4, 2013.
DOLL BONES, by Holly Black
illustrations, Simon and Schuster
I created cover art and interior black and white chapter drawings for Holly Black’s new middle grade novel (HOLLY BLACK, you guys!). Coming Spring 2013.
THE GRUDGE KEEPER, by Mara Rockliff
Illustrations for a picture book by author Mara Rockliff, coming 2014(ish).

THE INCORRIGIBLE CHILDREN OF ASHTON PLACE, BOOK 4, by Maryrose Wood
interior illustrations, Balzer & Bray/HarperCollins
A big ol’ curve ball here – I’ll be doing the interior black and white illustrations for book 4 in the middle grade series by Maryrose Wood. Jon Klassen (squeeeeal!!!) was the artist for book 1-3, and will still be illustrating the cover. Check out the books! http://www.maryrosewood.com
Phew – awesome projects, right?? I’ll give a little more info on each one in subsequent posts, and will update on each project as I’m allowed to share more.
