My most recent children’s book, A Tree for a Year written by Ellen Dutton, is about an unaware human who learns to love the forest with a little help from the creatures that live there. The message is a sweet and simple reminder to be aware of the world around us and what we can do to help make it better.
I had a great time researching and creating all the animal characters, from birds to bears, and bringing them to life in the story. I learn so much every time I get to draw a new creature for a book! Sometimes the initial doodling of animal faces is one of the most fun parts of the process.
