just wanted to quickly share some pictures of the Sardis and Stamm book release event at the Antioch Dunes a couple weeks ago. we had a pretty great turn-out. a big THANK YOU to all those who came to support us and the park!
the day first consisted of a dune tour, where we got a glimpse of the ongoing habitat reconstruction (step one: big piles of drying sand)..
…and then snacks and storytime with the book’s author, Matthew Bettelheim, at the Big Break visitor center…
finally, Matthew and I signed some books (and got our books signed)! i was a bit nervous. googling, “how to do a book signing” didn’t prepare me for this experience! it was all a little overwhelming. luckily everyone was very patient and kind and i had a great time!
now i’m back on the East Coast, back in Brooklyn, back in snow. i’m working on another short illustration project, this time for a story that takes place in San Francisco. i’m looking forward to drawing some sun(!) as i sit here huddled, a sad, shivering blanket burrito.
