1. Last glimpse of home from the Bainbridge Island Ferry, March 30, 1942
I did this illustration for an exhibit at the Washington State Historical Society. It will be on display with other work by SCBWI members November - January.
On March 24, 1942, a Civilian Exclusion Order was issued for all Japanese American residents of Bainbridge Island, Washington. They were given 6 days to prepare for their eviction from the island and were removed to internment camps. Bainbridge Island was the first place in the United States to receive the order to leave, due to its proximity to military bases. In the end, about 120,000 Japanese Americans were interned during the war.

  3. Spooooky squirrel in the creeeeeepy woods! Oooooooo!
Actually, this is just a perfectly normal squirrel, other than being a bit of an angry jerk of a squirrel. He does live in the creepy woods, though.

Hopefully my last cat illustration for a while. Maybe I’ve worked out this cat obsession for the moment.
Oh wait, I’m working on a book with a cat main character. ha ha ha
