All About Our London & Edinburgh Adventure

Here's a compilation of all my recent posts about the trip and the stories our destinations are entangled in.


BLOG POST : This is Why I'll Be Gone

My husband, Ethan, and I weren't able to go on a honeymoon when we first got married (almost 5 years ago!), so I'm extra excited to share with you that we'll be gone all next week to finally take that trip!

We'll be visiting London and Edinburgh on what really is basically a giant nerdy literary tour. ;) It'll be a dream come true in so many ways for me.

You. Guys. This is a detail of the new giant Neverland Map Poster Print, including the Jolly Rodger and the Round Pond, which is exciting all by itself. But that's not why I'm using more periods than is grammatically correct.⠀

I’m a super introvert, guys. SUPER introvert. So this was a big thing for me to try. I’m a little embarrassed by how it turned out, but you know, next time will probably be better. And I love talking about stories and want to share all that fantastic, meaningful stuff with you as I create more illustrations from stories we love. So here’s to getting out there and doing scary things, and failing and trying again.
