World traveler came home to fulfillment

Update: The stories have both been archived. Read “World traveler came home to fulfillment.” The original full-page, color story about my trip around the world in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is no longer accessible :(

Read a great story about my trip around the world, coming home, and how this all evolved into working with local schools to illustrate children’s books as an author-in-residence with my Make-A-Book Project.

Thanks to Laurel Walker for doing such a thorough job, and helping build our local community by spreading change. I also had a big big surprise to see that I made the cover of the online edition. I had many teachers tell me that it was a win for the education system during these troubled times of protests in the State Capitol. Also, see the fun photo gallery by Kristyna Wentz-Graff.

How I make the aerial view photos look real, including using satellite views and chalking the drawing out square by square.
The ice cream social and book signing celebration for "Ruby the Red Worm" drew over a 1000 people. It was one of the most overwhelming, amazing and fulfilling moments of my life to see the dreams of so many students coming to life.
The new book, Ruby the Red Worm, is finally here! Perhaps no one is more surprised how beautiful it is then me, especially the cover!
