My First ‘My First Hidden Pictures’ Cover!!!
Hopscotch illo for Highlights’ ‘My First Hidden Picture Book’ series! I love making illustrations for a younger audience every once in awhile— this one’s for about 3-6 year olds. I get to use simpler shapes and pastel colors, (gotta love those pastel colors!) So, can you find the Bird? What about the Shoe, Bell, Lollipop, Mug, Golf Club, Toothbrush, and Paintbrush. See it big here. Have fun!!!

How to Dress for Halloween
Hi Friends! Here’s hoping you fashion yourself a model Halloween!
Here’s a recent cover I did for Highlights Mag, along with some interior pieces. Can you find the Needle on the cover, the Spatula in the Monster News piece, or the Ice Cream Sandwich in the Monster Olympics piece?
Welcome to the world Noelle!

‘Where’s Gordo’ Poster for the L.A. Galaxy!
I happen to be a HUGE ‘Where’s Waldo’ fan and Martin Handford is one of the great overlooked children’s artists of our time and ‘The Great Waldo Search’ is a true masterpiece and full of allusions of the history of Europe and— well, that’s enough. But I also have a Waldo shrine above my desk.
So I was thrilled to get the call on this one.
This was one of my favorite pieces I’ve ever done for Highlights Magazine. I love logic puzzles (many plane rides have been mitigated by them!), and was excited to do a piece that might introduce them to a younger audience.
The art director asked for a small town with four store fronts, where pasta is hidden among the people and architecture. I immediately thought of a very European-style plaza— say, Italy! (duh, pasta.) So I got to do a piece that focussed a lot on mood and architecture as well, and break away from the Americana I often find myself doing.
And thus, this piece was created, and I’m thrilled with the results! Can you solve the Pasta Puzzle??
