Two educational mini comics for Scholastic

It's been an age since I've updated my art blog, and that's mostly due to having had a baby! Little Yolanda leaves me just enough time to post a recipe once in a while, or make myself a cup of tea, but time to draw? Not a chance!

But, here are two small comics I created for Scholastic last year that are now being distributed to schools. These were two very fun projects, the first being an info comic about garbage and recycling. My inspiration for Garbage Strike was the real garbage strike we had here in Toronto around 7 years ago -- what a mess!

The second comic is also informative, introducing Galileo to young readers and the birth of astronomy as we now know it.

I grew and learned very much working on these books, which I had to research, write, lay out, draw and colour, all for professional publishing as opposed to personal work. I hope I do more of them, and hope the kids enjoy them.

i love your comic! I am organizing a community garbage collection, due to Toronto's strike and I was wondering if I could use the image for my neighbourhood postcard?

Thanks, Maura!
Unfortunately I can't share this artwork as it's property of Scholastic now. I appreciate you asking -- Good luck with the collection! :-)

When it's cold you want something that can really protect you from the cold and wet, you can opt for the cheap north face jacket. Because the North Face is such a great brand that its jackets can be quite costly. However,the cost at the North Face Outlet can save you a lot of money! When you are shopping for cheap north face jacket is definitely one of the best brands to stick with. A lot of the time there will be a surplus of the north face because other people don't want to pay that much for a jacket! This is why you can generally wait a bit longer and wait for the retailer to mark the price down before buying, because there will be plenty left to choose from. This is a good way to get cheap North face.
