My not so ordinary submission for this years Tomie Depaola awards

I've been a member of SCBWI member since 2007, so I figured it was finally time to enter the Tomie Depaola awards with my not so ordinary piece for his prompt - "Sneeze" A sneeze, Is a breeze, In, Your, Nose.

Wish me luck!!

"Memoirs" Girl's scrapbooking kit

Recently I had an opportunity (that went south) to design/illustrate a Girl's Scrapping kit product line.  Needless to say that the physical product will never see the light of day, but at least I now have a few good looking pieces to add to my book/portfolio :-)

Introducing the new Humpty Dumpty comic!!

Recently I had the pleasure of working with the AWESOME crew over at US Kids Magazines to redesign the Humpty Dumpty characters and comic for the July/August 2013 issue of Humpty Dumpty magazine.  It was a great experience, and I really enjoyed how everything turned out.  Check out all of the new work below, and be sure to stop by your local newsstand where for the first time Humpty Dumpty magazine is available for purchase!! ~ Merrill
