Sorry, about the long break between posts. I don't have a really good excuse, just sorta bad excuses. You know; cleaning house, yard work, working on a job, wanting to make the next picture really cool. The list could go on and on.

Here is a character from a story I'm working on (she's a super hero). Her name is Zuzu. This is a younger version of her. In the story she's around twelve. I'd love to hear from you. What are the stories that come to your mind when you see this picture? What are your guesses to her powers? (Btw, there are no clues as to what they are in the picture, so let your mind go crazy.)

Enjoy this weeks coloring page.

Children's Book Week

Last week was Children's Book Week. The Provo Library hosts some great activities and panel discussions. Tuesday night authors Kristyn Crow, Jessica Day George, Tess Hilmo,
E.J. Patten, and Rick Walton lead a panel discussion. They answered questions about their favorite books, where they write, where they get inspiration. Loads of fun. Afterward they signed books.

So, I love mid grade fantasy. I could safely say its my favorite genre. Those of you out there that share this passion should read E. J. Pattern's Return to Exile.  In fact go buy it right now.  

Thursday's panel consisted of illustrators Guy Francis, Nathan Hale, Julie Olson, Jake Parker, and Will Terry. I'm always so inspired by my fellow illustrators. Its fun to hear what they're working on.

You should take a look at Jake Parker's Kickstarter project. Its awesome. Today is the last day to back his project (In case anyone is interested.) 

Finally, the moment you've all been waiting for... A brand new coloring page! This time its "Little Red Riding Hood." Have Fun!

Coloring Page 2, Goldylocks

Here is coloring page number two. I've had a busy day so I'm finally getting around to posting this Page.
(P.S. I just heard my three year old playing by herself. She said, "You killed my father." "No! I'm your father." That's my girl.)
