Hard to believe that we are at the mid point of February already. This winter seems to be just flying by for sure. I am excited though that this means in a little more than a month I will be doing my artist residency at the Circle of Nations School in my hometown of Wahpeton for 2 weeks. Thanks to the amazing opportunity with a National Endowment for the Arts grant, I will look forward to immersing myself with the students there to teach the ins and outs of book illustration and work on a project with them that we hope to produce. Not only will I get the pleasure of working with the students, but also an amazingly talented writer Lise Erdrich! The time can't get here soon enough:) I have a feeling it will be a similar feeling to this!
