Los Angeles Times Kids' Reading Room

This is my illustration for the Los Angeles Times Kids' Reading Room for Sunday, January 8th. What to do when you're a princess with very unprincesslike behavior? Read the charming story, "What's Wrong With Winifred?", by Joan Strauss.

The Hive Gallery: Tarot 3

I was invited to contribute a painting for the Tarot custom card deck that the Hive will be printing in conjunction with its third annual Tarot show. The Major Arcana cards were assigned to the artists at random. After the initial shock of seeing "Death" next to my name, I decided to think of the Death Card as the rock star of the deck—the one card that everyone is aware of. And afraid of getting. Of course, the card  is not about a physical death but about transformation and rebirth. Here is my version: the beauty of the spirit emerging from the bare bones of the past.

The Hive Gallery opening reception is Saturday, January 7, 2012, 8-12:30 a.m. Show runs through January 28th.
