Gloria and i have been sitting on this news since january... we are so thrilled to finally be able to announce that star in the forest was optioned to be a feature film!!!!!! 🌟🌲👏 my close friend, gloria garcia diaz, who translated the book to estrella en el bosque, will be a cultural consultant during the development! dana friedman of kaleidoscope media, inc. is the big-hearted indie producer behind the film. gloria and i feel confident that this story is in wonderful hands with her! star in the forest is about a mexican immigrant family separated by deportation, seen through the eyes of a girl determined to reunite her family... with the help of an abandoned dog, a zany new friend, and a bit of magic. you can read more about it in my blog post… link in bio. please send star good wishes on this adventure… 🙏✨🎬❤️ #booktofilm #kidlit #middlegrade #diversebooks #immigrantchildren #immigrantstories #indiefilm #starintheforest #librosenespañol

Way back when anika and i first started to put together the ideas for our next collaboration (to be published in the spring of 2019 with christy ottaviano books) i designed the characters as guinea pigs. not sure why, but it seemed right at the time! we set aside the idea because we were busy with other projects but when we came back to it, somehow the characters had changed. funny how that happens.

Another page from the wondrous brand-new reissue. a few days back: first copy of a tiger called tomás, by my late mother, charlotte zolotow. the book was first published in 1963, as a tiger called thomas, and has just been re-issued by sourcebooks. new, truly wonderful illustrations by marta alvarez miguens bring the story to life in a new way, with text updated plus with an afterword by me. marta’s cheering hip illustrations are warm, vivid, saturated (even the dark nights are somehow bright) and welcoming. the friendly quality of the neighborhood she portrays contrasts poignantly with tomás’s fear. but masked as a tiger on halloween, he finds the courage to engage, discovering that even as he sat quietly observing, he too was being seen... and liked, becoming part of his new neighborhood. i am proud of this one, thrilled that it comes at a time when so many tomáses may feel- and even more heartbreaking, often be – unwelcome. i hope this book will shine a tiny bit of light on how things might be, and in some cases, thank god, are. #atigercalledtomas #immigration #childrensbooks #childrensbooks #charlottezolotow #childrensbookillustration #kidlit #martaslvarezmiguens #crescentdragonwagon

I've started on a new portfolio project based on a book by papadikis called "the world garden." i love that it's about people and our relationship with the natural world, and i knew it'd be fun to work on some illustrations for it. here's the first painting experiment i've done for it, of chinese rice terraces 😊plus a thought on the colour scheme! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

São eles não são? os nossos principezinhos que nos ensinam a cativar, nos ensinam a cuidar, nos ensinam a ser verdadeiros, nos ensinam a amar! ⭐️ a maria é menina mas vai ficar girissimo no quarto dela (e eu sei de uns quantos meninos e meninas que iam adorar - o fundo é recortado, então pode ser de qualquer cor!)
