Doodle Dorks is a weekly-ish blog in which me and my fellow doodlers, David Fremont and Brad Mossman, create an image and 'poem' based on an assigned word, phrase, or concept.
This weeks assignment was the word 'nut'.
We each have totally different styles and points of view so it's a ton o' fun to see what each other does.

Children's book Author/Illustrator, Aaron Zenz , has a blog called Bookie Woogie where he and his kids review their favorite books and create accompanying fan art.
In celebration of the blogs 3 year anniversary, he posted an open invitation for artists to pick one of the kids drawings and use it as inspiration to create their own image.
I kind of liked the idea of doing a 'cover version' of kids art so I gave it a go.
You can check out all the action at the Chicken Nugget Lemon Tooty blog.

I've recently had the pleasure of becoming pals with the uber talented, rock star of the children's publishing world, Jarrett Krosoczka.
Jarrett and his wife Gina have started a really cool tribute blog to the legendary author/illustrator Tomie dePaola in honor of his 75th birthday.
It's called Three Kisses for Tomie.
They have reached out to the Children's book community to create artwork in celebration of Tomie and I was lucky enough to be included.

Thanks Jarret and Gina!
