A friend of mine asked if I'd illustrated her family's Christmas card this year. Of course! Especially when she told me how she wanted her family portrayed. She asked for her husband, sister and herself sitting angelically peaceful next to a Christmas tree with her 3 yr old daughter strapped to the top dressed like an angel. LOL, so funny.

Who got to meet David Shannon, Jon Scieszka, Adam Rex and Mac Barnett? That's right, I DID. And 4 nicer guys with books you shall never meet. I found out they were in San Diego about 45 minutes beforehand and I raced down to La Jolla to see them in action. They put on a fantastic presentation full of reading (but more like acting out) their books, cracking jokes and drawing crazy animal mash-ups suggested by the kids. If you ever get a chance to go to one of their presentations, I highly recommend!
