The article is about "Where The Jobs Are?" with the humor being that people are looking for jobs in the wrong places, such as in constellations, at the end of a fishing pole, with the help of a psychic, through various scientific lenses, etc.
This was such a fun and creative job to work on! A big thank you to Dick Anderson, a great editor and art director, who gave me so much creative freedom! Super Fun!!
I just finished a series of illustrations for New Moon Magazine for Girls, which is a great magazine for girls written by girls! I illustrated a story written by Zosha Matheson Dadey, age 15.
The story is about a girl who gets captured by a dragon. Before the dragon eats her she starts telling him stories about a Chimera, which is part lion, snake and goat. Awesome!! The dragon likes her stories to she continues to tell him more so he doesn't eat her. A knight comes and tries to save her from the dragon, but he faints out of fear. The girl tricks the dragon, and with the knight's sword she kills the dragon. When the knight awakens he says, "I saved you from the dragon!" The girl says, "No I saved YOU from the dragon!" This explains the misunderstanding of the traditional story of the Knight saving princesses from dragons.
What a great twist on a traditional story with an empowering message for girls!
This year I was invited to the most beautiful wedding ever! My good friend Yuka Takeda and her husband Ryan Edquist were married in Tokyo, Japan. They are some of the most talented and nicest people ever, ever, ever! It was truly an honor to be invited and to go to the wonderful country of Japan.
It was truly an unforgettable and life changing experience. Until next time...!
