It has been a good summer here at Wilder Farm. I’m starting the final art for my book FLIGHT SCHOOL. What fun it is to create.
I’m also very excited to be working on a new non fiction book about baby animals. It feels like the culmination of a life long passion for watching animal behavior and drawing animals. Here is a sneak peak at a few of the sketches.
Many of the animals depicted in this book are inspired directly from animals I’ve watched – the Grizzly cubs my parents photographed in Yellowstone, a baby giraffe I met behind scenes at the wildlife park just a few hours after his birth, a baby orangutan I watched and sketched, raccoon kits that lived in our backyard... I’m fascinated with the ways animals have adapted to raise their young, so I love doing the research for this book.
I’m also gearing up for the release of my next book – RED HAT. Yes, it is a follow on to RED SLED. I’ll be posting more about that soon. I’m very excited about this book. And to celebrate it’s release I’m trying to get all my friends and family to wear their red hats and send me a photo. I’ll be posting more about this on my website soon – but just to entice you – here is a photo of my parrot, Beatrix putting on her red hat. Her grandmama is currently knitting and embroidering several more hats, so more photos to follow.
