I'm really bad at posting. I'm working like mad these days, but I've got nothing new to show yet... So I dug up this little baby. I made this ages and ages ago, but a snowflake project called "Robert's Snow". The project involved many many well known children's book artists creating snowflakes to raise money and awareness to a charity organization dealing with cancer. I felt a little out of my league at the time, among so many other artists, so i went above and beyond to make this little sculpture. I was actually sad to see it go. And of course the pictures i took are just crap. But oh well...

Anything else to report? I got interviewed by Nicki Richesin for the Children's Book Review recently. For anyone who might want to know more about me and read my witty banter, click on the link.

That's it! Happy New Year Everyone!
