Back after a little break!

Hello everyone! Hope you had a great Fourth of July weekend. I surely did as I enjoyed the last few days out at the lake catching fish, swimming and relaxing. It was a much needed break after a couple of months of craziness with numerous book projects all going on at the same time. But don't worry, things are still going to be coming up and am working on a children's book right now that I will look forward to talking about sometime in the near future.

One of the things that I am really excited about is coming up this weekend at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts Target Family Day on Sunday. I will be creating a large chalk mural of Joan Miro's "The Spanish Playing Cards" on the 3rd avenue entrance of the museum. I will be out there 11-5pm and would love to have you stop by and say hi! It should be a great day of fun activities tied to the theme of "Groovy Games" for kids of all ages. Look for images from the event on my blog early next week!



I also recently decided to pick up a new book that I had heard a lot about. It is Alyson B. Stanfield's book "I'd rather be in the studio!". I am looking forward to finally getting the time to get some reading in again. Hope you guys have a great rest of the evening and will be back soon.

Glad you had some time to relax- you have been so busy! Wish we could see your chalk mural, but we have to take the kids to a b-day party. Wishing you a nice time and no rain!

Shawn: Enjoy the book! Wear it down, write in it, fold the corners. Own it!
