Intermission - Deer riding scooter

A funny thing about doing a kid's books is that the book is created about a year and half or more before it is published. This year I have been working on two books, neither of which have pandas. This is a recent sketch drawn while developing some of the characters. It's not directly from the book, just trying to bring the character to life by putting it in fun poses.

Reading and Book Launch this Saturday Nov 15

I will be doing a book reading and talking about pandas and such this Saturday Nov. 15, 1 pm at Monkeyshines Children's Books in the Mardaloop area. 113, 2215 - 33rd Ave SW. Stop by if you can!
