Well the book reading and signing was a great success! My thanks to all who made it out. There is a nice article in the Sioux Bulletin which can be downloaded as a .pdf file here. I have also placed some books and calendars at the Sioux Lookout Travel Information Center so folks can pick up copies there if they like.
About the calendar. Over the past several years I have been photographing wildlife and nature scenes around Sioux Lookout. I have taken some of the best of my images and created a calendar which is available for purchase at 20.00 each. You can view a preview of the calendars (or purchase online) here.
Looking ahead a bit, I have a table at this years Sioux Lookout Arts and Crafts Sale. Details will be posted here as soon as I know more.
Thanks for stopping by!

I have a book release date confirmed for "The Big Round Frog Returns".
It will be on Tuesday September 29th at the Sioux Lookout Public Library, and things will kick off at 6:30 pm. Hope to see folks there!
As a side note, my last book order arrived a few days ago so I should have copies of all my books available, in case you missed out on an earlier title.

It's here!
The Big Round Frog Returns is officially ready. I have recieved several copies and hope to announce a book release locally in Sioux Lookout, but if you don't live anywhere close by then by all means order online. I will be attending as a vendor at a workshop series in Dryden on Saturday, October 3rd in at the Best Western Motor Inn. Copies of all my books should be available (I hope my next shipment arrives by then!). Also on hand I may have some calendars of local wildlife photography which I have put together. The photos were all taken in and around Sioux Lookout over the past year or so by me (yeah, another hobby!) You can preview the calendar here.
That's all for now, I'll try to upload a cover shot of The Big Round Frog Returns a little later.
Till then...have a great day!

Well, The Big Round Frog Returns has been uploaded to the printer. I have ordered a sample copy to look for errors or areas that need touching up. Fingers crossed that it will be right the first time around!
More soon, once I get my copy.

Sneak Peak

Here is a sneak peak at one of the pages from the new "Frog" book. The illustrations may be tweaked a bit before publication, but this is pretty close to the final look.
More to come as I get the book wrapped up!

Yet another very long stretch between updates. Seems like a trend. I have some good news however. I have received several more finished art pages for the storybook "Welcome, Welcome!".
Still no real ETA on it's publication though. Sigh. I know, I know.

On a more positive note, I have begun to illustrate the sequel to "The Big Round Frog: A Cautionary Tale In Verse".
I'm pretty excited about wrapping this one up and releasing it so watch this space for sneak peaks and release details. Who knows, maybe I can have it ready for the Sioux Lookout Blueberry Festival this summer!
For now, I'll leave you with the prologue to the new "As Yet Untitled" Frog book, just to whet your appetite...

You may recall that in a bog
There lived a very Big Round Frog

Whose trick it was to sit quite still
So all the bugs thought he was ill

But really it was just a trap
And so he ate them, thwap thwap thwap!

Which brings our story up to date
But don't go yet, just hold on...wait!

There's more to Frog-ish life you know
So hold on tight 'cause here we go!

So there you have it. Want to leave a comment? Please feel free!
Till next time
