I was at Babar Books in the Pointe Claire Village (Quebec) this past weekend, and spotted fellow IFKer Susan Mitchell's latest book, Too Many Fairies on the shelf. So I snapped a few photos with my trusty iPhone.
Below: The cover. And you can see the spines of the book on the shelf.

I just finished putting together my calendar for 2011. It has one illustration for each month. All the illustrations are made this year, and they're all made with digital tools.
The calendar has Norwegian text, but it's easy to understand the names of the months, so if you would like to buy one, just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

By far, my greatest inspiration in October was attending the Highlights Illustrators' Party at their editorial offices in Honesdale, PA. Besides the specialness of hanging out for three days with a ton of other illustrators who freelance for Highlights, and meeting the art directors, editors and other staff of the organization, I finally met in person fellow IFKers Jannie Ho and Jennifer Morris! So there were four out of seven of us at this event! What fun we all had! And Susan and I were travel buddies and roomies, affording us LOTS of time to talk and share, especially on the lengthy drive from Montreal to Honesdale and back. I was re-energized after all that, I must say! If only we had illustrator parties more often. : )

- Highlights High Five Magazine. I had an illustration in the latest issue so I got the magazine in the mail. I love looking at all the different illustrations they use. It's just filled with inspiration!
- All the fall colors outside. Orange leaves swirling around. Love it!
- Putting together an illustrated calendar for next year. It's great to see several of the illustrations I have made this year next to each other.
