My Virtual events during San Diego Design Week


San Diego Design Week kicks off this week with free, LIVE, virtual events anyone can attend, and I’ve got a few of them:

Boygirlparty Party @ San Diego Design Week

And, art shows continue to go virtual! I just shipped out 8 paintings to Nahcotta’s Enormous Tiny Art show, which can be seen at

Next art shows: the Plant Show at Giant Robot, and “Final Girls” at Spoke Art.

I was recently featured in this wonderful article by KPBS titled “Local Illustrator Brings The Sweet and The Macabre to A New Children’s Book”.

And there’s been some other positive press recently about my new books, too! Red Tricycle calls She Wanted To Be Haunted a “Best Kids Book of the Summer”, and Kirkus says its “spunky, appealing personality” and “cheerful, lively illustrations” are “not necessarily just for Halloween; readers can appreciate it anytime.” — Meanwhile, Little Muir’s Night received praise from the Sierra News saying “This joyful book is the perfect bedtime read-aloud for the littlest nature lovers.”

And, for a little more behind the scenes, check out this replay of a live Q&A I had with the students of the Castelar School in Los Angeles, organized by my good friends Martin Wong, Eloise Wong, and Wendy Janet Lau:

And again, a reminder that I’ll be doing another Q&A Live and free to attend THIS FRIDAY with the public library. Details & RSVP at — plus there will be an opportunity to get a sold out, limited edition pin, which I made for independent bookstore day (recently, and bizarrely, mentioned in FORBES MAGAZINE:
