Happy Book Birthday!

Tomorrow is the release date of the 2nd book in the Stratford Zoo series by Ian Lendler and Zack Giallongo, colored by yours truly. Find The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Romeo and Juliet at your favorite comic shop, bookshop, or online seller. It already has some great reviews on Goodreads and here is what the Kirkus Review says. If you enjoy it, consider writing a review on Amazon or Goodreads. It helps the publisher decide if more books will be made for the series!

Here is a peek at a few of my personal favorite pages (without too many spoilers) from my review copies:

(Full disclosure: I did not color the delightful cover.)

Mangosteen and Lanzones

I've been working on some little watercolors of the delicious tropical fruit we ate while in the Philippines. Here are the first two!

Philippines watercolor sketches

Oh blog, sorry to ignore you for so long! Short update: I finished illustrating two books earlier this summer that will be out this November. More on that in a later post. Then my husband and I moved to a new place in late July (still in Queens) and we just got back from 3 weeks in the Philippines!

Here are a few little watercolor and ink sketches I did on location while there. The first three are from The Pearl Farm Resort on the Island Garden City of Samal in Davao. The last one is of the Manila Film Center that I painted from our hotel balcony.

I did some travel comics and took a bunch of notes for the days I didn't draw, so I may get those up here at some point when they're finished.
