Story Time this morning at the New Children's Museum San Diego

Always a good time at one of my favorites story time venues! It was a great turn-out, a total of 66 toddler/preschoolers/parents today! I read Colorosaurus, Countasaurus and Shapeasaurus with the help of some very bright kids, and then we moved to our art making session. Favorite coloring technique of the day, by a cute preschooler named Amayah: "making gum" - just jam those crayons on the paper as hard as you can, and the colorful-waxy-dots will be "gum". Artist kids never cease to amaze me! Special guests: Tessa and her grandparents, and Ana and her cute Valentina!

Cover art for the September issue of Ladybug Magazine!

Sample-happy week at Luciana Illustration's headquarters! Fresh from the mail box: my first appearance at Ladybug Mag - art cover for the September issue!

Back to School!

Where did summer go? We are all super excited to go back to school at Luciana Illustration's headquarters! I worked on over a hundred illustrated activity cards for McGraw-Hill Everyday Mathematics last year, and I just got samples in the mail! These cards will be used by second-graders all over the country. It was a long but rewarding project with the always great-to-work with designer team at McGraw-Hill!
