origami kid's books

Roger, Kitanai, Rudie, Stickman, Charlie, Mag-3000, and Gordon

Family and friends can probably attest, these quirky characters and books were my life, last Summer. I'm so happy with how they came together and excited to share with you today! Big thank you to Ashlee at Capstone, it was a true and fun collaboration, and I look forward to working together again soon. As I posted before, each of the stories center around an (easy-to-fold) Origami character, and offer young readers a fun glimpse into the every day science all around us.  I recently learned that we will be doing four more books, so there's more to come down the road!

more fun from Zamorano!

children's collages assembled together

I wanted to share the latest amazing work from the gifted children at Zamorano Fine Arts Academy.  Don Masse's kindergarten class recently created collages inspired from the leaves and branches in my illustration above. It's such a fun idea, you can tell the kids are having a blast. I wish I could have been there. He then assembled the children's pieces into the charming panorama below.  Check out all the beautiful work and more at shine brite zamorano.
