Illustrator Day at Greenwood Elementary in Plymouth, MN

02.28.13

I had a fantastic time on Tuesday, February 26th at Greenwood Elementary School in Plymouth, MN. A BIG thanks to Linda Gibbons (Media Specialist), Lauren Ingwaldson (Super Tech Person STP), and Pam Christensen (PTA) for making my visit so welcoming.

From the start of A DOG IS A DOG to the finish, I used eleven sketch books.

5 different students draw squiggly lines on the paper and then I connect the lines and we figure out what it is.

This one turned out to be an octopus. That day we also had a crocodile fish, a crazy elephant, a guy in a snow hat, and a princess sniffing a flower.

Coming up with new rhymes to DOWN BY THE BAY.

My personal favorite was, “Have you ever seen a rabbit with a bad habit.” I chose to make the bad habit biting fingernails.
