I illustrated this series for Scholastic called I'm Reading Now! There are 4 sets to be published throughout the year, with the first set (shown here) coming out in September. Available through Scholastic Book Clubs.
Each set comes with 8 books, about the adventures of a 5 and 4 year old named Ben and Ruby.
I just recently finished the last set; it was sad to see Ben and Ruby go. But it was very rewarding to see the printed books for these- I'm happy with the way it turned out.

I've got several things I'm working on presently, and this greeting card is one of them. What you see is just the top half of the illustrated copy on the rough, so the colors aren't added or flushed out yet. I have decided, though, that the background will be a bright green/yellow. The above copy will be laying on top of. The card category is "everyday/encouragement". Not for children, though, as the inside copy says something about having margaritas!

I'm currently working on 6 books about holidays and this is a shot of what my screen looks like right now, drawing out my pages in Illustrator. The first book is due tomorrow so I'm chin deep in bezier curves and color palettes.
