Illustration Friday - "Breezy"

I will be so happy when I feel warm breezes on my face again. Winter in Chicago is much too long.

The Latest News!

In just a few short weeks, my latest book "The ABCs of Yoga for Kids" will be making its way all across the country and beyond, and I am SO excited! You can now get your own copy by clicking the link at the bottom of this post, or by clicking the little book icon in the top right corner of this blog page. But here I thought I would give you a little sneak peek inside the book.

I also wanted to announce that I will be at Village Books in Pacific Palisades, California on March 27th for a book signing with the book's author, Teresa Ann Power. We will also be presenting at a school assembly earlier in the day. I will announce future dates here on my blog as they become available.


So here is a peek inside the book. Remember, click on the link at the end of this post and it will take you to the official website where you can order the book for yourself!

so very unimpressive...

Whenever prompted by certain blogger groups to post photos of our studios, I cringe. Mine is nothing all that impressive, really. Sure, I'd love to have a beautiful expensive easel, hardwood floors, a skylight, track lighting and an awe-inspiring sound system. But I don't. Truthfully, I can't even afford an iPod these days. My easel is cheap...I bought one of the cheapest ones Blick carries and used a 40% off coupon. My rickety old metal closet doors (circa 1972) have been replaced by beige drapes from Wal-Mart. My computer desk (unpictured) has a broken leg and is supported by a thick old book. But this is where I paint and draw and write. Sunshine is happy with the arrangement, and I am glad to have her here to keep me company.
