Sketching dog walkers in Berkeley

As promised, the final piece I submitted to the SCBWI Tomie dePaola contest.

Enjoying my newest children’s book “Rules of Summer” by award winning author/illustrator Shaun Tan. This page’s rule:never forget the password. #art #illustration

More printing completed today! #letterpress #illustration #vandercook (at San Francisco Center for the Book)

I entered SCBWI Tomie dePaola contest today. The winner gets a free trip to the SCBWI winter conference in 2015! Tomie dePaola has been an inspiration of mine since I was a little kid, so just to have him look at my work is pretty cool.

This is a little preview of the six-panel piece I submitted. I will be posting the full piece soon!

Did some printing today at the San Francisco Center for the Book. Get ready for some adorable cards at the Sebastopol Street Printing Fest! #printmaking #sf #letterpress #sebastopol #illustration
