Groundhug Day-influences part two

Here is another inspiration post from my most recent book, Groundhug Day, written by Anne Marie Pace. This one is a bit more obvious for those Looney Toons fans of a certain age. Can you identify the paws and the plans in the image on the right? Check out my Instagram account to see more character development drawings!

Groundhug Day-influences

A friend was just asking me about my influences in creating the world for Groundhug Day (Anne Marie Pace, Disney/ Hyperion). Emmit Otters Jug-Band Christmas was definitely in the mix!

Book signing!

Join us on Saturday, for a hugs & hearts storytime + book signing! Anika Denise and I will be at the Savoy Bookshop and Cafe in Westerly, RI. (Because signed books make excellent Valentines, don't you agree?)

School visit and a ninja squirrel

Catching up on some posts that never made it to my blog!
A quick little account of a recent school visit and a fun link to the now famous "Ninja Squirrel"

December 8th: Super fun day meeting the students at Moses Brown in Providence R.I. today! This picture shows a pig that we all came up with but the best part was when the subject of my live ipad drawing demo was taken over by the second and third graders. You can see our "Ninja Squirrel" on my Instagram feed.
