Bella Gets Dressed

Late last spring I was commissioned by Highlights High-Five to make four images for a sweet little story called Bella Gets Dressed. The art was published in the September 2013 issue. If you'd like to see the other three illos, click here to be redirected to my website.

Modern Woman

Last month I made an illustration for USA Today's MODERN WOMAN magazine, which is out today in the fall/winter 2013 issue. On the very last page, the essay "Let's Get Real" (by Allison Weiss Entrekin) discusses reality vs. the images we project via social media. Very interesting topic, excellently written.

Art direction by Erin Aulov.

Isabella's Shoe Studio Photo Contest!

Here is your chance to win a hand-made felt Isabella doll, and/or other cool stuff. Look at all of these little Isabellas—one of them is calling your name!

This contest is soooooooo easy!

Follow this link and click the Isabella doll. A larger, 2-page PDF will appear on your screen. Print the paper Isabella doll (front and back), and cut her out. For a more durable doll, print on card stock. Use a glue stick or double-sided tape to attach the front and back pieces together.

Carry your paper Isabella around town with you, and take her photo! My friend Vikki sent this cool pagoda shot all the way from China. Go, Vikki!

Post your favorite photo on Isabella Shoe Studio's Facebook page to have your name entered for a chance to win fun prizes.

Contest ends on December 31, 2013, so don't delay! You know Christmas will come and go before you can say "Isabella's Shoe Studio."


Isabella is the cute and funny star of Isabella's Shoe Studio (duopress 2013), an adorable Doodle Storybook™. Isabella dreams of becoming a famous shoe designer. The book is full of clever educational activities that teach kids about the processes of design and artistic inspiration.
