Guppy and Signed Copies

While in San Francisco we stayed in a really lovely B+B in the Mission District. They had a dog named Guppy which I just had to draw.

In SF I visited a couple of wonderful bookstores and signed some copies of my books. The bookstores are just the right size, small enough to feel precious but big enough to have a good selection. I signed several copies of The Quiet Book and The Loud Book at The Booksmith on Haight Street, And I signed some Red Wagon, The Quiet Book, The Loud Book, and Little Panda (!) at Books Inc on Chestnut Street,

We meet at last!

I just got back from a wonderful week in San Francisco, where I met up with Deborah Underwood, the author of The Quiet Book and The Loud Book. It was the first time we got together in person, although it feels like I have known Deborah always!

We exchanged autographed copies of the books, this is the drawing in the book I did of/for Deborah. (Although it turns out she is left handed, oh well.)

Deborah also gave me a signed copy with a couple of her drawings. I love them!

They are so sweet!

Drawn In

I am excited to be included in the book Drawn In: A Peek into the Inspiring Sketchbooks of 44 Fine Artists, Illustrators, Graphic Designers, and Cartoonists by Julia Rothman. It showcases many lovely sketchbooks. It was very interesting to see which sketchbook pages were selected for the book. I did not choose any myself, although I think I might have covered up a few I didn't want chosen!

A preview of the book is HERE.

And it is available on amazon HERE and will hopefully appear in bookshops too!
