I attended the New England Society of Writers and Illustrators conference this past April in Springfield, MA. While there I participated in an intensive workshop with Giuseppe Castellano, art director at Penguin Books. The assignment was to draw an illustration from a Beatrix Potter story in our own style. I chose this scene from The Tale of Jeremy Fisher.

A few months ago I was hired to teach a small group of middle schoolers how to draw portraits at a birthday party. Afterwards I drew a caricature of each of them while they took turns drawing each other. Great group of kids and very nice family. The birthday girl's mother sent me some awesome photos and permission to post them. I get photographed while I am drawing at events a lot, but I rarely get to see them. So this is very cool. She said the girls had a great time and they all loved their portraits.
