Hey everyone!
Check out my events page for fall 2015. I'll be in San Francisco-Oakland/Bay Area libraries with lots of fun Lowriders in Space activities Oct. 10-18, and will soon be posting some fun Portland events in November.

This summer, 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. More info to come soon.

My graphic novel for kids, Lowriders in Space, has been out for almost a year, and Book 2 will be published in spring, 2016. It's called Lowriders to the Center of the Earth, and its adventures are even more over-the-top than book 1!
While you're waiting, check out our trailer for Lowriders in Space. Feel free to share it anywhere in the galaxy. And you can read a preview of our book too.

My graphic novels are published by Chronicle Books and illustrated by Raul Gonzalez III. Here's some accolades from blogger Elizabeth Bird and Pink Me's rave from Book Expo.

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.
