Most recently, my friend Lisa Connors wrote a new children's book in her "...but that's not all" series. It's called Salmon Matters: How a Fish Feeds a Forest,and she invited me to illustrate it. I worked on it for about 6 months ~ researching the concepts presented and learning new art techniques. I've included several images here, but if you want to have a copy of the book, here's the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Salmon-Matters-Fish-Feeds-Forest/dp/1720855285/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1534601919&sr=8-1&keywords=salmon+matters
Salmon Matters: How a Fish Feeds a Forest is a story of sea to forest connections in the Pacific Northwest. Perhaps you remember, Milkweed Matterswhich Lisa wrote and I illustrated. This book presents another amazing story ~ this time on the coho salmon ~ its birth, life, travels, perils, and the renewal of forest nutrients thanks to its incredible life story.
