It's hard to believe that fall is in full swing already, but that is good news for a lot of fun things going on in the studio and beyond. The first bit of news that I am happy to share is the soon to be release of my newest children's book titled "The Sick Bug Goes to School". The second book in the series, "The Sick Bug Goes to School" deals with the things kids face when going to school and illness. As this little snippet shares, I think you will quite enjoy the second book from Susie and I.
The Sick Bug returns in this outrageously silly sequel to the award winning children's tale "The Sick Bug". In the charming follow-up, the Sick Bug has his sights set on an elementary school classroom where he and his bug friends take advantage of some ideal germ-spreading opportunities! It will take one observant student and his clever teacher to help the other children foil the Sick Bug's plans to spread! Combining engaging dialogue and eye-popping illustrations with everyday classroom-appropriate hygiene lessons, "The Sick Bug Goes To School" is destined to be another hit in schools and at home!
The book itself is to be out by next week (first of November) and we are looking forward to the release party which is happening on Wednesday November 17th at Mama's Happy in Mound. Here is the full info

Secondly, if you happen to be in the Sarasota area in Florida over the next week, be sure to come by the first international street painting event in the US! The Sarasota Chalk Festival is going to be a blast and I am so excited to be one of the featured artist working together with Anthony and Michael to create a huge 20' x 40' street painting! Pictures will definitely be posted as the work is being done! For more information go to Sarasota Chalk Festival website
Thanks and hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!!!
