Gulf Fritillary

On a walk CJ and I found a butterfly with a broken wing, which turned out to be a Gulf Fritillary.  I carried it to some flowers in the shade.

SCBWI Hawaii Regional Conference

This past weekend I attended the SCBWI Hawaii Regional Conference in Honolulu.  It was incredibly inspiring and amazing.  Holy crap, I got to meet Dan Santat, for crying out loud!  I especially loved his breakout session entitled "Writing from an Illustrator's Perspective," which discussed illustrating a picture book first and adding text later.  Super enlightening.  I was also fortunate to listen to presentations by the amazingly talented Kirsten Carlson and Suzie Townsend.

Honolulu Zoo

This Friday CJ and I took a trip to the Honolulu Zoo.  Aside from the disappointing fact that the hippos weren't available to see, we had a great time!

Can't remember what kind of wild cat this is, but I DO remember that I wanted to take him home!
