Anorak Magazine

The past couple of days have been quite rainy and gloomy, but there was a little bright spot from across the pond waiting in my mailbox yesterday—a copy of Anorak Magazine’s Games Summer Special issue!

Anorak is a really cool and beautifully designed kid’s magazine independently published in London and is aimed at children age 6 and up. This is a “keeper” magazine printed in vegetable inks on thick, matte recycled stock. It can be a little tricky to find it in the States, but it’s worth seeking out—or better yet, order issues online.

I first came across Anorak online this past spring and knew I would have loved it as a kid, so when a call for entries for the Games issue came up, I couldn’t resist. Like all the issues I’ve seen, this one is chock full of neat stuff, so I'm very happy that my Yeti paper toy is in it!

A huge thank you to Anorak founder/editor Cathy Olmedillas for including my work in the Games issue!

It is an honor to have a recent piece, Yeti Mountain, on the cover of the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators Southern Breeze chapter's summer newsletter! The great folks at Southern Breeze were also kind enough to interview me as the issue's featured illustrator. Thank you so much!
