advent calendar day 1


Last year was so much fun, I'm doing it again. For every day between December 1st and December 24th I will open another door on my advent calendar. If you are not already signed up to receive an email with the Gesine-made image of the day delivered to your email every morning, you can do so here. As always, you can opt out of receiving pictures of cute creatures by unsubscribing . If you happen to like cute creatures-enjoy!

This here is Thompson by the way.

oregon reads aloud

The wonderful Oregon Reads Aloud anthology, put together by SMART (Start Making A Reader Today) is now out in the world. SMART is celebrating 25 years of providing reading support and books to Oregon children with this illustrated book. The book is a compilation of 25 read-aloud stories written and illustrated by Oregon authors and illustrators and I'm so proud to be one of the illustrators. The story I illustrated is called The Day The Puddles Stomped Back, written by Heidi Schulz- so Oregonian!

So many of you asked if they could buy these guys. I only made this one set, so I decided to auction them off on ebay! Auction closes on Tuesday December 22nd.

I had to do it, couldn't resist. My contribution to the mounting excitement.
