In college, I majored in my two favorite subjects, reading and drawing, which has proved to be an endlessly useful combination for making picture books. So far, I've illustrated 11 books (one of which I also wrote) plus lots of ancillary educational pieces. A good day is painting an assignment in photoshop for awhile, then painting for myself in oil paint, with npr and cat Rufus for company.
