I have been a Garzon fan from the beginning!! Have read two of her adult stories. Your illustrations are beautiful.

Thanks Cakemom!!! I remember us having a discussion right after 'Blaze of Glory' came out, and now it's a trilogy, with a spinoff on the way :)

I thought this book we're working on (with TinyLiny) would be way simpler to write, since it's a kid's book, but the opposite has proven true. That's what I get for agreeing to write a story with my kids, LOL.

I wish I had someone like you near by to teach me Wonderful work, as always. I particularly love the first one, with the boy on his bike.

I like the bike one, too. it was the first I did . unfortunately, it's very hard to maintain an exact consistency of style throughout all the illustrations. I see a lot of variation in this, and it bothers me. hopefully, the viewers will not be as harsh of critics and will focus more on the content of the image, rather than the style.

here are a few more:
