Drawing with kids

This past weekend I read some books and drew pictures with kids at CMOM (The Children's Museum of Manhattan) - I read three books and showed them how to draw the characters from each one - we all had a fantastic time, and the kids were really incredible artists. I took some pictures, and unfortunately I didn't catch their names, but I think there were some future illustrators there for sure.

Screeeeech! It's finally here! So excited to share the book trailer for NUMBER ONE SAM!

Made by the same team that created the trailer for The Watermelon Seed, Jimmy Simpson did the video direction and production, Christopher Sean Powell did the music, and I did the drawings. 

I really love watching these guys zoom around on screen - Check it out!
