Packing up orders to be shipped out tomorrow 💖 just a little reminder that tonight is your last chance to get a free 5x7 if you spend $25+ ♡ there's still plenty of time for prints to make it to you before Christmas!
This year had a slow start but a fantastic ending! I’ve learned how to be more free with my lines and expressions and I also learned that I can be sort of funny sometimes...who knew?! #bestnine2017 #bestnine #2017bestnine #2017 #2017art #sketch #sketches #sketchbook #sketchoftheday #doodle #doodles #doodleart #doodlesofinstagram #draw #drawing #drawings #illustrator #illustration #kidlitart #comics
When you’re daughter wakes up as you’re finishing the ✨FINAL✨ touches on your first illustrated book and stopping isn’t an option... you just have to pass the art supplies! 🌱💛 #smallwins #familyvalues #kidlitart
Advent Day 8 // 8 Beatitudes // Definitely one of my favorites to illustrate! P.S. In case you didn’t know, all of the illustrations from the First Bible Basics Book are available as 8x10 prints or posters in larger sizes! *link in profile* . . “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. . Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. . Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. . Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. . Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. . Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. . Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. . Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” . ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:3-10‬
I love this little house, I can almost hear the voices and feet bustling around and the smell of a freshly baked pie all year round. The kind of house where everyone is loud and in each other’s business and they are always hanging out on the porch because there isn’t quite enough room inside to not bug each other 😏 I feel like this little house really exhibits my whimsical (and hopefully unique) style. A style I am trying to carry through to my pet portraits and eventually family portraits too (eventually...). What feelings does this drawing evoke in you, or what does it immediately make you dream up in your head? I would love to hear! (And thank you to those that bid on my pet portrait! We will be able to provide one dog with over two months of food from that one donation!) ❤️
Another stormy adventure. #sandstorm #flyingaroundtheworld #kidlitart
Had a fantastically fun and therapeutic time doodling elephants with @aisforanika, @liznugentdraws and Denise. Thanks for hosting and the delicious lunch Anika! ❤️ #artyladyparty #kidlitart #tw
Having lived in New Jersey all my life, I can honestly say that when it snows, I like it! 🙂❄️🌲 If anything, seeing so much snow makes me want to go hiking and see the forest away from the city. Plus, I can always warm up with a fresh cup of joe when I get home! 😬☕️🔥 . . . #illustration #ink #brush #brushpen #copic #copicmarkers #traditional #art #artist #childrensbooks #cute #kids #kidlitart #little #girl #hiking #hike #wilderness #explore #mountains #travel #adventure #christmas #stars #xmas #trees #forest #snow #love #kawaii
Charlotte, bully and rival to Chrissy certainly has some fighting words.⠀ ⠀ “Merry Chrissy” is a 3-part novel series for readers 9-92 and follows the adventures of 9-year old Chrissy Deigh; who is in the Christmas spirit year round. Her attraction towards the magic of the holidays gets the attention of the North Pole, in which she eventually starts “working” for them. You can learn more about these books online and download the first book for FREE for until Dec 22 by clicking on the link in the bio.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #instabook #middlegrade #childrensbookillustration #childrensillustration #bookworm #childrensbooks #bookish #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #illustration #bibliophile #instabooks #childrensliterature #kidsbooks #childrensbooks #christmas #books #giveaway #kidlitart #kidlit #free

Let’s see if you can spot it...
Red Mittens by Laura Bannon, 1946
Throwback to Christmas 2012 when I gave my niece, Neela, a book I made about her adventuring around San Francisco. This was a one-off book that I eventually revised into my self-published children's book "Neela Goes to San Francisco". Makes my heart leap even now seeing her eyes get wide as I read to her, how she counts with me and her excitement when she sees a little girl in a book that looks like her. The published version of this book is up in my shop and makes a wonderful gift for any littles in your life (age 2-6) who enjoy learning about a place and/or counting along (for the younger kids)! . Reminder that the guaranteed shipping date for orders to arrive by the 25th is on Tuesday the 12th! You can order after that but you may have to choose a faster shipping method for peace of mind! . . . #booksforgifts #giftsforkids #neelagoestosf #kidlit #kidsbooks #kidlitart #illustrationart #illustrator #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #weneeddiversebooks #sanfrancisco #publishing #selfpublishing #makewhatyoulove

When your amazingly talented friend illustrates children's books, your daughter becomes a character! Thank you @alexandraco_illustration ! #yourdailymaya #kidlitart
Picked Narnia out of a list of movies we had to do for a movie poster final, and this is (almost) my last final to finish so it was really relaxing to make ❣️ now I’m waiting for my comic to get printed and then I’ll be done!!
Voted in a poll @guardianaustralia #birdoftheyear 2017 and no wonder. 1. Magpies can mimic 35 species of birds as well as cats and dogs. 2. They have a dawn song and a dusk song. 3. Helper birds can sometimes feed young 4. The babies are very noisy 5. Booroogong and garoogong are Wiradjuri words 6. Have an array of complex vocalizations. #magpies #love #australianbirds #illustration #childrensillustrator #childrensauthor #kidlitart #painting #watercolour #brushandink #sketchbook #art #gouache #gabriellewangbooks #childrensillustration

Here’s the full Illustration of this year’s winter promo! This one is dedicated to my favorite book store. All the books are laying on the ground are real Japanese children’s books I grew up with (and now my daughter as well).

🌈 #2017bestnine 🌈 Yikes that’s a lorra likes.....it’s been a tough old year, nothing major, no illness, no drama but dealing with the dark corners of my mind and those pesky thoughts that keep you down. Guess what I only found out this year? Those thoughts are just that and DON’T have to be taken as the actual, factual, heads down, thumbs up, real deal, gospel TRUTH. Only taken me approximately 2,365 years to work this out 🐢Therefore I must say an ELEPHANTINE thank you to old friends, new followers and support from many corners, especially Karina @quickbrownfoxuk Laura @lauradownes_jewellery and Natalie @powerthoughtsnc 😍Here’s the best of my bright little bunch for 17. I think 18 is going to be just fine 🌈 #katebodellwriterandillustrator
We celebrated Christmas with some of our bestest chosen family today 😊.

I always loved storms as a kid because I’d sit on the front porch with my dad and count the seconds between thunder and lightening ❤️ I still do this when there’s a storm! If I had to think of a happy place this would definitely be in my top 3
Day TEN of the 12 Sleighs of Christmas: - The manuscript called for a flying car so I figured the elves would attach some sort of wing to an SUV with skis on the bottom. Seems to get the job done. #12sleighs #christmas #christmasbooks #kidlit #kidlitart #flyingcar #suv #christmasbook #christmasbooks
Happy Christmas dear Instagram friends. Hope it is everything you wish! @scbwi @theaoi #kidlitart #christmas #illustrator #illustratorsoninstagram #childrensbooks #childrensillustrator
The most wonderful time of the year! 🎄 #hygge #kidlitart
Do you know anyone like this? She's not your mom, but she loves you fiercely, protects you, and would do anything for you. She's taught you things you didn't even know you needed to learn; she can be a bit overbearing, but when she takes you in her arms, you feel safe. She's so busy taking care of everyone else, you don't even realize the hardships she's been through, or is still going through (hint: it's not the one she's harping about). People call her bossy and loud because they don't know another label or how to make her sit down and shut-up. But if she sits down or shuts up, we'll all be worse off! Meet Birdie Nuthatch who lives in Hollyhock Hollow near the Fairy Ring in Newman Forest. Get to know Birdie in all the Petalwink books (link in bio) and tag the Birdie in your life. #kidlit #character #characterart #characterillustration #kidlitart #illustration #watercolor #birds #fairies #fairybooks #motherlove #mentor #bossy #storybooks #childrenslit #childrensbooks #bookstagram #fairylife #family
“It’s snowing!” Cried Erik. “It’s more like a light dusting” I replied. “Perfect” he replied “anything more than a light dusting makes snow angels incredibly tiring...and you wouldn’t want to see me fatigued, it ain’t a pretty sight”.
