Hey everyone!
Check out my events page for 2017. I'll be in Portland, OR with lots of fun Lowriders in Space and Lowriders to the Center of the Earth activities.

Some exciting book news -Lowriders to the Center of the Earth (book 2) and Raul III won the Pura Belpre Award for Latino Illustrator. And there's going to be a Lowriders book 3! More info coming soon, but for now, Raul and I are working hard to get it finished.

Other book news - I sold a picture book to Dial/Penguin called Ten Ways to Hear Snow. It shares the gentle story of a young Arab-American girl and her grandmother exploring the sensory details of a snow-blanketed city morning in their own ways.
While you're waiting, check out our trailer for Lowriders in Space. Feel free to share it anywhere in the galaxy. And here's a 5 star review of Lowriders to the Center of the Earth!

My graphic novels are published by Chronicle Books and illustrated by Raul Gonzalez III. Here's some accolades from The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books and Huffington Post's great interview with me about the books' creation.

I also now have my arts and crafts up for sale - search SeedyArt on Etsy to shop and explore.

An Oregon filmmaker, Rebecca Gerendasy, made a video about my seed art for her food related website Cooking Up a Story. I'm grateful to her for capturing my passion for making seed art on film, and for showing the process of creating. Watch the video below.

Amy Sedaris' book SIMPLE TIMES; CRAFTS FOR POOR PEOPLE features my seed art portrait of James Brown. It's featured in the New York Times Book Review.
