LA Festival of Books

May 1st, 2011

Yesterday I went to the LA Festival of Books at USC. This is the first year that it’s been held at USC. I have to say that I liked it better at UCLA because the sections weren’t all broken up into smaller sections. There was an impressive line up of children’s book author’s and illustrators. I was really excited to find a copy of Return of the Dapper Men by Jim McCann and Janet Lee at one of the booths. I recently read a review of this book that piqued my interest. I love the way that the illustrations are divided up on the page. It’s not just your typical squares in a row. I also discovered a new illustrator that I really like, Tao Nyeu. She uses a limited palette and a simple style in each of her books.

In other news, I’ve been really busy working on a picture book. Hopefully I can share some drawings from it soon. I’m also adding an option to buy cards in sets of 10 at my Etsy store. You can pick and choose cards that you want as a set. Individual cards are now $3. If you buy 10 cards it’s $22.50. My blank flower cards are great for Mother’s Day! I plan on adding prints to my store as well but they might not be up until I’m done with my current project.
