This phrase just popped into my head and of course I needed a cat to go along with it! I loved illustrating this jaguar. Her spirit was so powerful to me. I kept thinking, “She doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her. She’s so comfortable with who she is.” #28daysofkidlit

It's time for office shelf Saturday! 📚 I really love all the graphic novels, artistic magazines, design, illustration, art and picture books in my office. So much so, that when I redesigned my office in the new year I made sure to group them by color. I've got a rainbow row going on and I thought it would be fun to give you a glimpse of red --> orange today ♥️🧡. I've tagged as many of the artists / authors as I could for you guys 🤗 Wishing you all a fantastical Saturday!

"You'll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart"
...
George Michael became a popstar initially with Wham before rising into the solo artist and singer we all knew and loved. Michael, who came out as gay in 1998, was an active LGBT rights campaigner and HIV/AIDS charity fundraiser. ...
What wasn't known about George Michael until after his death were his many quiet acts of kindness like funding a Deal or No Deal contestants IVF treatment. Or when he heard a woman crying in a cafe about her debt and quietly left a cheque for £25k on her table when he left.
...
Jane Barron of the Terrence Higgins Trust said today: ‘We are so saddened by the loss of George Michael. George also often thought of us to kindly donate experiences and gifts that were used to raise vital funds to help us support people living with HIV.
...
‘Along with other charities, we were grateful to benefit from the royalties of George’s 1991 duet with Elton John, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me. His donations contributed to a vision of a world where people living with HIV live healthy lives free from prejudice and discrimination.’

There was a sock and a hat and they were deciding on their upcoming travel arrangements and how they might go about getting to their destination and so the hat said to the sock “I’ll go on ahead you go on foot”. And the sock said nothing because socks do not now nor ever will talk.

Tonight our story was A Beginners Guide to Bear Spotting by #michellerobinson and illustrated by @dr.illustration, it is published by @macmillankidsbooks. 
This is such an entertaining book and the illustrations are fantastically vibrant and funny. The book is like a field guide on bears but, obviously, everything is very unscientific and goes a bit wrong. 
Niamh wants to read this one again before we take it back which is always a good sign. She really liked that it was different and not a straight forward story like most of our usual reads. It’s always nice to discover something a bit different. 🐻

🌟 ANNOUNCEMENT 🌟 As some of you know, I am currently working on illustrating my first picture book, Katie Not Afraidy @katienotafraidy . It has been such a privilege having a creative partner in Gina @ginamperkins and I feel so grateful that our hearts connected so that I could reimagine this with her. Gina and her daughter, DJ, wrote such a wonderful and important story that addresses childhood anxiety. Not only is it a great resource for kids, but HUMANS of all ages living with anxiety (including myself). Today, we are happy to reveal to you the heroine of our story... KATIE! 😭 We love her so much and we hope you do, too!! .
PLEASE check out @ginamperkins post announcing Katie. She wrote the most beautiful caption!

I noticed three of my posts were pulled I imagine due to the content of my children’s picture book being considered “offensive”. I could see how the images might be misunderstood, but to clarify I am in no way advocating that children should eat phones and rocks and such quite the opposite in fact. Here is an excerpt from the book’s text.

It’s a Coatamundi party! I enjoyed drawing this one so much. When I lived in Costa Rica, we had a neighborhood troop of Coatis that would visit us from time to time. I was always enchanted by their funny noses and their fluffy tails. #28daysofkidlitart .

Gladys Bentley was an American blues singer, pianist, and entertainer during the Harlem Renaissance. Her career skyrocketed when she appeared at Harry Hansberry's Clam House in New York in the 1920s, as a black, lesbian, cross-dressing performer. She headlined in the early 1930s at Harlem's Ubangi Club, where she was backed up by a chorus line of drag queens. She dressed in men's clothes (including a signature tuxedo and top hat), played piano, and sang her own raunchy lyrics to popular tunes of the day in a deep, growling voice while flirting with women in the audience.

"If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door."
...
Harvey Milk was the first openly gay elected official in Californian history. Although he was the most pro-LGBT politician in the United States at the time, politics and activism were not his early interests; he was neither open about his sexuality nor civically active until he was 40, after his experiences in the counterculture movement of the 1960s.
...
In 1972, Milk moved from New York City to the Castro District of San Francisco amid a migration of gay and bisexual men. He took advantage of the growing political and economic power of the neighborhood to promote his interests and unsuccessfully ran three times for political office. Milk's theatrical campaigns earned him increasing popularity, and in 1977 he won a seat as a city supervisor. His election was made possible by a key component of a shift in San Francisco politics.
...
Milk served almost eleven months in office, during which he sponsored a bill banning discrimination in public accommodations, housing, and employment on the basis of sexual orientation. ...
In 1978 Harvey Milk was assassinated, despite a relatively short term in office, Milk was and is still considered an icon in the LGBT community and a gay martyr to many. His work and life is still held up as a beacon of progression and hope for the future of equality.

Animal City by @negrescolor - @chroniclebooks 
When the wild things return and the city succumbs to jungle, the animals are entertained by a storyteller.  Imaginations run wild and artifacts are unearthed from the earth and the book the storyteller brings on her visits.

Happy Monday!I It’s #artvsartist again. I like this game because it makes me notice how much my work has changed in a year. Writers and illustrators- do you ever do that? Look over your recent work and think about how it used to be? That reflection then helps me make illustration goals for this year - more grownups, covers, tonal & color studies, ambiance and settings. Artist & writer friends: What are your craft goals this year?

This is a shoutout to the wonder woman, Irina Lillo, @mama.inostranka, whose extraordinary passion for life, love and dedication to her family as well as her commitment to nurturung the love of reading in her 3 beautiful children is an absolute inspiration!
📚
Like Irina I grew up in the former Soviet Union and can so relate to this wonderful book she shared. Looking back at growing up in the 1950-60's Russia, "When Grandmother and Grandfather Were Little" ("Когда дедушка и бабушка были маленькими") is a collection of stories telling fondly of the history that our children are mostly not in touch with anymore...
📚
Beautifully written by Ekaterina Murashova and Natalia Maiorova and with brilliant illustrations by Ekaterina Bauman this is a must read for any Russian family whose  parents want to bring kids closer to the historic legacy of their origins!

Thank you, Irina @mama.inostranka!

Detailed view of one of the Leafcutter ants from a couple of days ago. Interesting side note: Way back in grad school, I explored the idea of scientific illustration. We had a dissecting scope in the lab and I spent hours sketching leafcutter ants. Full circle moment! #28daysofkidlitart .

"How many years does it take for people to see that we're all brothers and sisters and human beings in the human race? I mean how many years does it take for people to see that we're all in this rat race together."
...
Marsha P Johnson was an LGBT rights activist and self identified drag queen and trans person. She modelled for Andy Warhol and was a prominent part of the Stonewall movement in 1969. ...
Johnson initially called herself "Black Marsha" but later decided on "Marsha P. Johnson" as her drag queen name, getting Johnson from the restaurant Howard Johnson's on 42nd Street. She said that the P stood for "pay it no mind" and used the phrase sarcastically when questioned about her gender, saying "it stands for pay it no mind". She said the phrase once to a judge, who was humored by it and released her.
...
Johnson said she was one of the first drag queens to go to the Stonewall Inn, after they began allowing women and drag queens inside; it was previously a bar for only gay men. On the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, the Stonewall uprising occurred. While the first two nights of rioting were the most intense, the clashes with police would result in a series of spontaneous demonstrations and marches through the gay neighborhoods of Greenwich Village for roughly a week afterwards.
...
The circumstances of Johnson's death are much disputed, what is agreed by many is that her work for various trans and AIDS charities were invaluable to LGBT rights. Many who knew her hold her as a much respected and beloved member of their community.

A troop of Tamarins enjoying a Morpho fluttering past. Also know as Geoffroy’s Tamarin or Mono Titi, these little monkeys are common in Panamá gardens. They make a lot of chattering, high pitched noises when they talk they each other. #28daysofkidlitart .

Caption this! What is this Leaftosser thinking about, while she’s watching these Leafcutters? 🐜🍃 One thing that has been missing from my work is a sense of story. This image has been in my head for ages and it was so fun to bring it to life. I find myself giggling every time I look at it. Happy Friday, y’all! #28daysofkidlitart .

One of the things I’m enjoying so much about doing these drawings is recalling all the adventures we had when we worked in the rainforest. This guy is a Ground Cuckoo—a relative of Roadrunners. A rare and very cool rainforest bird! #28daysofkidlitart .
