I did this fun counting game illustration for Clubhouse Jr. magazine a few months back. When I received a sample of the publication, I was thrilled to see that I was sharing the pages with my favorite soul sistah, the lovely and talented Vanessa Brantley Newton

The art director, Kathleen Gray, is great to work with and asked me to make the boy African American and give him cool hair. I had a lot of fun with this one- especially his hair!
