Baking with Grandma

I just finished this piece for an assignment and thought I'd post it up. I love the subject of grandmothers and kids spending time together, it's a beautiful thing that I hope doesn't get lost in the dumbness of my generation. Personally, I grew up with my grandmother living with us, and despite the in-law tension with my mom, I would never change that aspect of my childhood! :-)

More Zodiacs

Due to popular demand, I thought I'd post some more of my Zodiac calendar drawings (including Leo, HB!)

First is my brother the humanitarian Aquarius...

...then Leo (based on Ilana), the energetic multi-tasker... friend Yasmine, the passionate and determined Scorpio...

...and the warm-hearted Taurus (that's you, chancha)!

Yay! My book won an award

As I mentioned in my post below, I've worked on a book series of wacky activity books for kids by Maple Tree Press, including Boredom Blasters which won a Silver Birch Award! This award is selected by Ontario readers -- yup, by kids! There could be no greater honour :-) While I was the illustrator and designer for these books, it was written by the insanely hilarious Helaine Becker, author of many, many MTP, Scholastic and OwlKids books.
