I like making things. I draw all the time. I bring a sketchbook with me everywhere. I also like building things. I’m not a big fan of following the directions. When I get a Lego set I’ll follow the directions once and then make whatever I want the next time. Blocks are the best! There are so many things to make, but often I try to make the tallest thing I can. I keep building until the block tower falls over.
I also like playing basketball, swimming, and going for walks in the woods with my dog.
I like reading stories quietly to myself, but I love reading stories out loud. The more shouting and stomping up and down the better. When I make books I want them to be fun. Fun colors, fun words, and fun characters.
I’ve always liked cartoons, and so my drawing style is rather cartoon-y. I like drawing robots, monsters, dragons, unicorns, and dinosaurs best. Oh, and whales, aliens, crabs, jellyfish, and uni-anythings! And bears! And dogs! And evil-mutant-potatoes!
Three Things You Might Not Know About Me:
1. I have seven siblings and I am the youngest.
2. I have a bunch of toy dinosaurs in my studio that like to show up in random places like in the fridge or on the toilet.
3. I’ve always wanted to have four arms.
