I have an illustration featured on one of the Doernbecher Foundation holiday cards this year. You can buy cards online here. 100% of profits go towards helping the children. If you don’t care for my design, there are plenty of others to pick from including some wonderful ones done by children.

For those of you who don’t know, Doernbecher Children’s Hospital is of great importance to Oregon and the entire Pacific Northwest. It provides not only much needed specialty healthcare for children but also advocacy, education and research.

I’ll be reading and signing books at Green Bean Books on Saturday, December 12th at 3:00. If you are in the Portland area stop in and say hi. Buy a copy of The Book That Eats People or any book to give as a perfect Holiday gift. I hope to bring along some other samples of work in progress and maybe some sculpture.

Green Bean Books is an independent children’s focused book store in Portland and I promise if you step in, you will find a book you want. I tried to escape without a purchase, but I couldn’t. Happy Christmas indeed!

Green Bean Books, 1600 NE Alberta Street, Portland Oregon 97211.

For the past few years I have been sending out a Holiday card with a Bigfoot theme to friends and family. I think it’s time to share. These stories were the real inspiration for the gift tags I do with Bigfoot and the Abominable Snowman. They have a less than perfect relationship.

Bookie Woogie is a tons-of-fun site that offers reviews of kids books, that include a kids perspective. The first time I read the site I thought it was BOOKIE WOOKIE…something to do with Star Wars? But no, it’s BOOKIE WOOGIE and it’s definitely worth checking out. They reviewed The Book That Eats People and had lots of good things to say about a bad book. Well, the book is bad because it eats people, um,  it’s a good book about a bad book…something like that. And Issac, Gracie and Lily offer some art inspired by the book! Too cool!

Great site and a great idea for getting a kids perspective on the books they read or that we read to them.
