Animals, Animals All Around

Writing and illustrating children's books has been a lot of fun.  Part of the fun comes from the process of creating characters and story lines.  The ideas for my books come from all different places such as my imagination, watching kids and pets, and listening to true stories about kids and families. 

Lately, I have had opportunities to find new ideas at a few different places.  A few weekends ago, my family and I visited the local Dallas Aquarium where we saw many cute, cuddly, and slimy animals like the penguins below.

And these flamingos.

This past weekend we were lucky enough to go to the Dallas Zoo where we are able to pet goats and a giraffe. Yes, a friendly giraffe walked towards the crowd so that we could pet him.

Also, we saw other animals like this gigantic, furry rabbit.

Our recent move to Texas has given us the opportunity to explore some kid friendly attractions in Dallas.  While at the aquarium and zoo, I took many photos that I hope to use as creative inspiration for new projects.  I am looking forward to working on some new books ideas.
