Playful Moon

So a few of you know that I've been illustrating a children's book called Playful Moon written beautifully by Michelle Leclaire O'Neill. It's for a non-profit in L.A. called Smart Beginnings/Easy Preventions. It's an incredible program that helps young parents get a great start on their path to parenthood. Please check out the website (here's the link) if you have time. This project has been a huge learning opportunity and I'm honored to be a part of (even a tiny bit) an organization that does so much good for young women and children.

Here's two of the main characters.

Michaele,

Yes, our little Wolfgang is a cutie... I have to admit to you, I call him "Romeo" every now and then... (by mistake) as he is the first boy in our household since our male tabby Romeo passed away.... it is difficult as well as a wonderful thing to have a new baby with us, when one passes, it takes time but we who love our animals... it is necessary to bring in a new LOVE, for them and for us! I know you will know what I mean. :)

xoxo
