How to Draw Dig, Dogs, Dig

In preparation for the Orange County Children's Book Festival this coming weekend I created a simple "How-to" page to show everyone how I draw my dog characters.

The festival is this Sunday, September 29th from 9:30AM - 4:30PM at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa California. Hundreds of children's authors and illustrators will be there signing and selling their books. If you get a chance, come on down and stop by my booth. I have activity sheets, stickers, books and a raffle for some signed and personalized copies of my next book Build, Dogs, Build: A Tall Tail.

I'll be on the illustration stage at 1:00PM and again at 2:45PM giving a live drawing demonstration and showing you all just how easy it is to draw your favorite dog characters. But if you can't make it, no problem. I've created this little "How-to-Draw" activity sheet that will walk you though the steps.

Hope to see you at the festival!

Play, Learn, Share... Dig!

I'm almost always online so when I ran across a blog post by Taryn and her kids on how much they enjoyed Dig, Dogs, Dig I couldn't help but respond. As a parent of home schooled/un-schooled kids I love reading about other parents who are fully engaged and excited about sharing wonderful learning and growing experiences with their kids. At this, Taryn is an expert!

So I couldn't wait to share some activity sheets and a special unbound copy of my next book Build, Dogs, Build: A Tall Tail. I'm so pleased they loved it as much as the first. With me, flattery will get you everything! 

Thanks for the great post Taryn.
