'Tis the Season

Gus decided to decorate the cave 
so he collected the greenery and asked Crow to help.
Time to bring on the festivities!

We Bare Bears...my new obsession

OK I am a tad smitten with these guys.
If you have not yet seen We Bare Bears,
and you do like kid's shows,
then watch the episode Tote Life.
It's good for a little break from reality.

The Owl and the Pussycat

 And it is a wrap.
Just finished "Illustrating Children's Books"
with Lilla Rogers MATS.
I chose "The Owl and the Pussycat",
But gave this tale an updated version.
 My characters took their pets along with them on their voyage.
 We explored expressions...
 and poses...
 and met some side kicks along the way.
I also envisioned this as a children's board book 
with pop up tabs, counting, colors and more.
Here is a spread that I envisioned as their pea green boat
landed in the "Land of Bong" at nighttime.
The greeting committee came out to meet them.  
Great class and now to work on some stories I have rolling around in my head.

Little Red Riding Hood Popup Cards

My students never cease to amaze me with their creativity. 
I love how they each interpret the story differently 
and don't copy each other. 
That is such a gift in this copycat world.
We drew on our iPads,
then emailed each layer to me,
I printed them out,
and we snipped and glued and created cards.
