What I'm working on

Hi there!

To share a bit of what I'm doing at the moment, I finished working on the animal book I mentioned a few weeks ago. This is a lovely book filled with all kinds of animals. It was a time consuming project in the sense that I had to do quite a lot of illustrations.

I also recently finished working on the two baby books from the series I'm illustrating and have just started to work on the following two. I love working on these! Really, they are so much fun. There is something about drawing babies, you can't sketch them without smiling. :o)

Another thing I did recently was work on my website, it went through a little make-over so to speak. I tried to still keep it very simple and clean. I used iWeb. It's so incredibly easy to use it's ridiculous!

And one last thing I wanted to mention. We all know how devastating Japan's earthquake and Tsunami has been. I can't get my mind off these poor people and country. They really need all our help. Even if you think you are just one person in a sea of millions and you wont really make a difference, you can. If we all help it will count. Your help alone might not be able to clear an area from destruction but it can give a grandmother a meal for a day. Or help get a blanket to keep a child warm. It doesn't matter how much you can give, just help in any way you can. It does count.

I decided to help too. You can read more about it here.
