It's hot!!!

The weather in July and August is soooo miserable here in Missouri! It is so hot, sticky and humid! I always long to live somewhere else during these months...somewhere with less humidity. The temperature is only in the 80's but the humidity is 85 percent so it feels like it's 100 degrees. Yuck!!! I don't mind higher temps when the humdity is low but man!!!! This humidity is just unbearable!

About the only place that's bearable outside right now is in the water. So, on that note here is an old illustration I pulled out of the archives that I did for an educational publisher awhile back.

Another book trailer

Here's another book trailer I did for the same publisher. This book was written by my hubby and illustrated by me. ;o) I've posted this book trailer on this blog previously but with different music and this one is just a wee bit different. The other one was just for my own enjoyment. This is for their website to promote the book. Hope you enjoy... These trailers are all posted at www.aakp.com which is the publisher, "All About Kids Publishing" in San Jose, CA.

What I've been working on...

In the midst of computer problems, I was asked by the publisher of a previous picture book to create some book trailers for their website. Through many trials that went along with upgrading my system and dealing with a sick computer, I am proud to say I pulled it off.

Here's just one of them for a new book coming out in the Fall of 2008. It looks like a really fun book!!

New computer

I have been going insane the past few days trying to fix a sick computer and then finally buying a new one. I LOVE my new Mac!! I got the new 24-inch: 3.06GHz iMac. I am still busy trying to get everything up and running and back to work but it is taking longer than anticipated so hopefully soon, I can start posting some actual artwork again but in the meantime I be happily playing with my new toy! :o)
